MOJO HD’S “WALL STREET WARRIORS” LAUNCH SECOND SEASON
Docu-money Series Looks at the Successes and Stresses of Financial Wizards of Wall Street; Premieres January 24, 2008
New York – Jan 3. - MOJO HD viewers have been invited back for a second season of the behind-the-scenes look into the heady and breakneck-paced financial world of Wall Street Warriors. This ten-part documentary series, filmed entirely in high definition in New York City and surrounding areas, profiles six driven financial investors, fiercely battling to generate as much money as possible while world-wide markets vacillate. Wall Street Warriors new season premiere is January 24 at 9:00pm, ET/PT. The series also kicks off a new programming block every Thursday entitled MOJO Money Night, now partnered with two new original MOJO HD series about maverick entrepreneurs and investors, Bobby G: Adventure Capitalist and Start-Up Junkies. The entirely new cast for the second season of Wall Street Warriors is composed of six ambitious players who deal in billions: Larry, a hedge fund manager and Frozen Concentrate Orange Juice (FCOJ) floor trader; Brett, a private equity fund manager; Jessica, a cotton commodities pit broker; Jim and Lance, two stock brokers; and Laetitia, a rookie trader, just at the start of her career. “Last year we found that the world of Wall Street finance struck a chord with the MOJO HD audience,” said David Asch, Senior Vice President, Programming & New Media for MOJO’s parent company iN DEMAND Networks, “so in the second season of Wall Street Warriors, we are expanding the series to include other financial disciplines, plus we are launching two partner series which explore the equally fascinating worlds of venture capital and entrepreneurship.” The Wall Street Warriors are followed throughout the trading day beginning with the opening bell. Whether buying and selling on the exchange floor, networking the night away or working intensely to meet their monthly targets, these “players” are driven to win.
The 2008 Wall Street Warriors include:
- Larry, buying and selling commodity futures on orange juice crops that haven’t even been harvested, working in the midst of the frenzied trading floor; ·Lance and James, a pair of high-energy stock brokers who oversee a team of competitive young brokers building portfolios for high net worth investors; ·Laetitia, just starting out (viewers join her at her graduation and first job interview) and trying to find her way into an entry level desk trader position; ·Brett, co-founder and owner of a private equity firm focused on investing in and growing small and medium-sized businesses. He also established a charity group which focuses on cancer and education, issues personally important to him; ·Jessica, a cotton commodities broker who feels being a woman on the floor works to her advantage and expresses her need to be mentally tough to succeed. All the “Warriors” deal with the see-saw shifts of a fickle economy, while bucking a competitive industry in order to beat the Street.
Wall Street Warriors was created by Scott J. Gill and Sean Skelton for Radius Productions, Inc. Executive Producer for MOJO HD is Emilio Nunez. Siobhan Graham is Supervising Producer.
