Ryan Cohen’s success in building Chewy into an e-commerce giant earned him recognition on Wall Street. However, his foray into the online frenzy surrounding GameStop and Bed Bath & Beyond transformed him into an icon for a generation of individual investors seeking to disrupt American finance. CNBC Documentaries presents “Making of the Meme King,” a one-hour documentary that delves into Cohen’s unconventional background and the bold, often controversial moves that earned him nicknames like Papa Cohen and the Meme-Stock King.
The documentary traces Cohen’s journey from a computer-savvy high school graduate to a billionaire catalyst behind the infamous GameStop meme-stock phenomenon. It features interviews with individuals close to Cohen who have never spoken publicly about him, retail investors from Reddit, board members and employees of companies associated with Cohen, as well as research analysts, securities professors, and journalists, including CNBC’s Melissa Lee.
