Gary Levine, Showtime’s president of entertainment, said in a Monday statement:
"'Black Monday’ mines big comedy from the greed, the style, the music, and the excess of the ’80s, but it’s also sneaky smart in its social commentary about that era – and indirectly, our current era as well. We can’t wait to see what inspired depravity David and Jordan will cook up in Season 2."
