News outlets and the rest of the country have followed along the journies of Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli and Felicity Huffman as they’ve served their sentences for their part in the college admission scandal, but Netflix’s new documentary on it will focus all on the mastermind: Rick Singer.
Singer pled guilty to racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and obstruction of justice, according to E! News. Unlike many others in the scandal, he hasn’t been sentenced yet.
The Netflix film “Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal” features never-before-heard interviews, wiretaps and more.
Here’s what we know so far about the film.
It’ll Use FBI Wiretaps
Singer worked with the FBI during the investigation by recording his conversations with the clients and coaches he was working with during the scandal. Netflix stated that it’ll use “an innovative combination of interviews and narrative recreations of the FBI’s wiretapped conversations between Singer and his clients.”
Viewers will be able to hear these conversations that have never been released.
The Producers Created Other Fan Favorites
This film is being created and directed by Chris Smith, who also directed “Fyre” and was an executive producer for the quarantine hit “Tiger King.” Jon Karmen, who’s also helping produce this film worked on “Fyre” as well.
It Won’t Focus On The Celebrities That Were Charged In The Scandal
While it’s easy to think this documentary will be all about the 50 people who were charged in the case, it’s really all about Singer and his tactics to create this heist. It’ll dive into the methods that he used to persuade his clients, according to E! News.
The Release Date Has Been Announced
“Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal” will be released on March 17 on Netflix. Details about the length of the film haven’t been released yet.
