Netflix is full of series that allow our imaginations to run wild as we place ourselves in the shoes of a kingpin in charge of some illegal practice. From Breaking Bad‘s Walter White to Ozark‘s Marty Bryde to Narcos‘ Pablo Escobar, these characters live a life of thrill as they do whatever it takes to build an exuberant empire, and it looks like we have another kingpin joining the ranks.
Nick Talman from the series StartUp is certainly a force to be reckoned with and his story is full of that money laundering action that keeps us at the edge of our seats.
StartUp has managed to climb to Netflix’s Top 10 trending list, which means it’s definitely a great series to watch. We tell you everything you need to know about the series and more right here.
