Actress Jessika Van in a scene from “Bulge Bracket”.
Bulge BracketHer gruelling schedule and lack of work-life balance prompted Au to examine the experiences of other investment bankers, particularly Asian-Americans like his wife, Cindy.
In 2011, Au, then working in media and business development, wrote a first draft of what would become Bulge Bracket – industry jargon that refers to the largest investment banks.
The short-series comedy, now in its first season on Amazon Prime, marks Au’s debut as an independent TV director.
In the show, a young Asian woman portrayed by Jessika Van, right out of business school, joins fictitious Boldwyn Brothers as an investment banker.
