Super Pumped Season 1 Recap
Showtime’s Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber, which aired on Sunday had a near-identical moment that occurred in the first episode. Travis Kalanick the Uber Cab CEO Travis Kalanick, who is played by Gordon-Levitt, is trying to come up with a plan on how his new start-up is going to dodge paying fines given down by the transit commission of the city. He is then given a highly unethical yet easy solution by the future Chief Business Officer Emil Michael who he has meant for the first time. Emil points out that the MTA of San Francisco only regulates cabs and so its no doubt that Uber Cab is fined and facing a huge existential threat then he states that if Uber Cab is no longer classified as a cab company but is classified as a ride-sharing service then there is no need to pay the fine.
Kalanick then declares that all of the corresponding regulatory problems, as well as liabilities in Uber Cab, are to be shut down. He then tells his in-house attorney to rename the company like Uber. He is questioned by one of his team members and he replies saying that the company will be called Uber with nothing added.
From here the story kicks into full gear.
The show circles back to 2011 and shows Kalanick striking a deal with Bill Gurley a hotshot venture capitalist, who even with all his money can only fund the company for a short period of time. Randall Pearson, who is played by Richard Schiff from The Good Doctor, is a powerbroker for the Mass Transit Authority of San Francisco. He is a throne on Kalanick’s side and is determined to make sure that the company fails unless Uber Cab pays its fair share.
A fateful meeting happens between the mayor and Kalanick, which goes in his favor but he still has to pay his fines as stated above he finds a loophole thanks to Emil. The cast is fully stacked with Chandler, Levitt, and Schiff, and the episode 1 cast included Elisabeth Shue from The Boys as Kalanick’s mother Bonnie, Kerry Bishé from Halt and Catch Fire who plays the role of Uber exec Austin Geidt, Jon Bass from the Miracle Workers as Uber’s true visionary Garrett Camp and John Michael Higgins from Saved by the Bell as business titan Michael Ovitz.
