‘Black Monday’ is, umm, this Sunday

You better be watching this Sunday night or I don’t even know what to tell you. I know there’s football, this is for after…

Welcome to “Black Monday,” a new Showtime comedy series that imagines the stock market crash of 1987 as the result of a rogue brokerage firm aiming to outfox the older (and whiter) Wall Street establishment. It’s a milieu seeped with the greed and decadence that inspired Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street” and, more recently, “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Big Short.” But given that the creators of the series (premiering Sunday) are known for the cutting, cultishly admired network comedies “Happy Endings” and “Marry Me,” the goals for this series are a bit different.
