All of the newest content on TV is ending up in the already watched list as the pandemic has stopped all kinds of production and allowed many of us to binge-watch our way through the entire list. We must patiently rewatch older shows or risk waiting on cliffhangers that the new shows have laid as traps keeping us hooked.

The show is about a group of newbies trying to take advantage of the Wall Street situation and beat the old guys on the table. Blair Pfaff’s world gets turned upside down when he unexpectedly makes an enemy out of the infamous Maurice Monroe or Mo as he is very popularly known.
