Plot Synopsis

Using the stylized storytelling of Adam McKay's THE BIG SHORT, host Kal Penn takes viewers on a journey to explore various aspects of the global economy. In each one-hour episode, Kal -- with the help of some celebrity friends -- answers a burning question like: How can I launder a bag of dirty cash? How scared should I be of a rubber apocalypse? Amazon Prime released the eight-episode first season of THIS GIANT BEAST THAT IS THE GLOBAL ECONOMY on Friday, February 22, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. In the series opener, "Money Laundering: A How To Guide," Kal travels across the globe -- along with a million bucks -- to learn how to turn a suitcase full of dirty money into cash you can actually spend. In this step-by-step guide, Kal learns from former cops and former criminals about how to gain access to a worldwide underground money laundering system.
