About this show

Like all CEO's of publicly held conglomerates, Dennis Holland of the fictional company Total Electric must deliver one thing: shareholder value. From the financial crisis of 2008 through the present, Holland scrambles to implement shortsighted ways to deliver quarterly profits, including spinning off divisions, green-lighting cutbacks, and consistently favoring quick fixes over long-term strategy. An activist investor challenges his leadership, and when the CEO decides to sell the light-bulb division, TE's founder, Thomas Edison, haunts his dreams. When the stock continues to tumble and debt mounts, the cost of his actions becomes increasingly apparent to his shareholders, his employees, and finally to himself.
