A new trailer for Netflix’s new documentary Operation Varsity Blues has been released!
The streaming service has just released a teaser trailer for the movie, which will debut on March 17, 2021.
It offers an inside look into the 2019 college admissions scandal and focuses on the ringleader, Rick Singer, and the methods that he used to get his wealthy clients’ children into top schools.
The documentary is directed by Chris Smith, who is known for directing Fyre, the documentary about the failed music festival Fyre Festival and its creator Billy McFarland, as well as his work as an executive producer on Tiger King.
Among the high-profile clients implicated in the scandal were Full House actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, as well as Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman.
Lori and Mossimo were charged with conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery, as well as money laundering conspiracy charges, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, and honest services mail and wire fraud.
Lori was sentenced to two months in prison and was released in December 2020, while Mossimo received a sentence of five months which he is currently still serving.
Felicity served just under two weeks in prison for committing mail fraud and honest services mail fraud and was released in October 2019.
The documentary will reportedly use a combination of interviews and narrative recreations of the FBI’s wiretapped conversations between Rick and his clients.
