What is The Consultant starring Christoph Waltz about?
* UPDATE 2/6/23: The official trailer was released, check it out below!
The Consultant, based on the 2015 book of the same name by author Bentley Little, is centered around Regus Patoff (Waltz) who is hired at app-based gaming company, CompWare. The consultant’s job is to improve the business, according to a Prime Video press release. But this boss proves to be twisted as the employees receive demands and challenges they start to question. And apparently, their lives are also on the line.
A full trailer has not been shared yet by the streamer, so in the meantime be sure to watch the teaser trailer which reveals the comedic-thriller tone of the series, why the employees believe the new consultant is a “sociopath,” and Regus’ weird ways. Check out the video below:
