Super Pumped gets a new, longer teaser with more Uber shenanigans

There is a new teaser for the first season of Super pumped, Showtime’s next anthology show about successful Silicon Valley startups. As we saw in the December teaser, the first season will revolve around Uber and its former CEO Travis Kalanick, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The first story in the series will be based on the book also named Super pumped, which was written by New York Times reporter Mike Isaac. This will follow, in the words of the trailer, the “savage, loud, arrogant, shady, reckless, excessive, ridiculous, damaging, scandalous” story of the founder of Uber, who stepped down as CEO in 2017. after investors demanded a change following a series of controversies.

This new trailer has some quotable moments, including one where someone asks “is this legal?” And is greeted with laughs. Then there’s Kyle Chandler’s line, who plays Bill Gurley, one of Uber’s early investors and former board member:

The best thing about Travis is he’s willing to go through walls to win. The worst part about him is that he thinks everything is a wall.

And, of course, there’s the replica delivered by Gordon-Levitt himself, where he drops the show. “Are we super pumped?” He shouts to a cheering crowd. If you’re super … excited for the show, it kicks off on February 27th.
