When is ‘King of Stonks’ releasing and where can you watch it?

The much awaited German dramedy series ‘King of Stonks’ is releasing globally on July 6, 2022.

What is the plot of ‘King of Stonks’?

Felix Armand is a programmer at a successful fintech company named CableCash AG. He dreams of leading it someday. But shit hits the roof when Felix has to deal with the company's IPO, money laundering allegations with investor deception and massive consumption of internet pornography in the management of the company thanks to his boss Magnus A Cramer (Matthias Brandt). Things are going from bad to worst and it gets more complicated when Felix falls in love with someone he wasn't supposed to — a short-seller called Sheila Williams (Larissa Sirah Herds).

The official synopsis reads, “Felix Armand wants to be at the top. Because once he's there, he can finally be a decent human being. After all, he's the damn mastermind behind the most successful FinTech company of all time, and all of Germany: the CableCash AG. Unfortunately, everything is already blowing up in Felix's face during the IPO: Money laundering, investor deception, internet pornography. As a medium-sized company, you certainly don't get applauded for using such methods by the German public. And after Felix has freed his megalomaniac and esoteric boss Magnus from the clutches of the Sicilian Mafia, he promptly abandons him, and Felix once again has to handle it all on his own. The press, politics, the underworld - and Magnus. They all want a piece of the pie and Felix can't keep up trying to play them all against each other. And so Felix turns from a lousy little programmer into the biggest swindler in German post-war history. And then there is also Sheila Williams, the woman Felix really shouldn't fall in love with. But....”.
