Black Monday: Season 1 (2019)



Critic Consensus: Black Monday zips with irrepressible style and a seductively stacked cast of charismatics stars - but this Wall Street odyssey is too preoccupied with flash to ferment its needed substance.

Tv Season Info

It's all happening at The Jammer Group, a ragtag Wall Street firm headed by Maurice "Mo" Monroe (Emmy nominee and Golden Globe® winner Don Cheadle). Mo leads his team of misfit traders, including no-nonsense Dawn (Regina Hall, Girls Trip), eager-to-please Keith (SAG® Award winner Paul Scheer, The League), wild man Wayne (Horatio Sanz, Saturday Night Live), and hotshot Yassir (Yassir Lester, Making History). Into this motley mix walks Blair Pfaff (Tony® Award nominee and Grammy® winner Andrew Rannells, Girls), a young wide-eyed trader who gets in way over his head. Together, they take on the moneyed, blueblood, old-boys club of New York finance and end up unwittingly crashing a Lamborghini limousine, the glass ceiling and the world?s largest financial system in this scathing comic commentary on 1980s excess.

Critic Reviews for Black Monday Season 1

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (22)

When you've got a cast like Black Monday's and dialogue like Black Monday's and costumes like Black Monday's, you should be able to forgive a story that isn't quite as remarkable as it might think.

As an actor, Cheadle obviously enjoys this sort of ride. From House of Lies to Black Monday requires little more than a change of wardrobe. The characters of Marty Kaan and Mo Monroe otherwise are cut from the same cloth.

A show with an incredible ensemble of talented actors but as little focus as its cocaine-addled characters.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Awash in red flags for a burgeoning series, as the lead character is a questionable, outdated pick and the premise begs for a quick resolution to the mystery being teased. But viewers could do a lot worse than invest in this likely crash.

To be honest, all this gets old pretty fast.

Black Monday has an interesting topic, but it chose to tell it four different ways rather than focusing on one interesting way.

Jan 25, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Despite a great performance by Regina Hall and some decent jokes, Black Monday is a hollow series that has a loud, overwhelming focus on obnoxious greed.

Jan 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It lacks any compelling through-line as a drama or a comedy, which is not even to mention how this intellectual vacuum renders those pesky non-PC jokes pretty unfunny.

Jan 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Four episodes in, Black Monday's tonal mash-up makes more sense. The mix of sitcom plotting, Seth Rogen/Judd Apatow-style bro banter, and glossy cable period-piece is starting to gel.

Feb 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

When Black Monday stays in its comfort zone, it's something genuinely refreshing to see from a prestige provider.
