The Deuce (Season 1, 2 and 3)
This series takes a look at life in New York during the 70s and 80s when prostitution was legalised and US porn business was booming. Before you disregard this series on grounds that it supports prostitution, you ought to be aware that I am recommending it because of the entrepreneurship motivation you can drive from it.
This series proves that opportunities do not come wrapped as a gift but rather through what happens around us. Watching The Deuce, you will realise that to have a stab at success, you need to keep a close eye on trends in the market and investigate whether any big external changes and fluctuations could work in your favour.
The Newsroom (Season 1, 2 and 3)
Entrepreneurship is all about understanding people’s needs and identifying with different social, political and economic issues influencing their lives in order to solve them. This show gives you just that, through an immersive and fast-paced story of a newsroom staff dealing with all kinds of news stories in a critical time in US history.
The Newsroom is a must see as its a dramatised educational show that highlights the relationship between media, government, and private markets. Additionally, in the first season, the storyline of Sloan Sabbith (played by Olivia Munn) will give you the most concise yet comprehensive explanation of an existing financial crisis.
