It’s the first of March, and that means new trailers and teases have been popping up right and left for upcoming projects. Like Netflix’s highly anticipated docu-drama about the college admissions scandal, “Operation Varsity Blues.”
Hailing from Chris Smith and John Karmen (the pair behind of one two competition Fyre Fest documentaries), and the executive producers of Netflix’s “Tiger King,” “Operation Varsity Blues” has some dramatic moments recreated directly from FBI wiretaps.
“Everything you’ve heard is true. But you haven’t heard everything. Using real conversations recreated from FBI wiretaps, the filmmaker behind Fyre brings you Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal
An examination that goes beyond the celebrity-driven headlines and dives into the methods used by Rick Singer, the man at the center of the shocking 2019 college admissions scandal, to persuade his wealthy clients to cheat an educational system already designed to benefit the privileged. Using an innovative combination of interviews and narrative recreations of the FBI’s wiretapped conversations between Singer and his clients, Operation Varsity Blues offers a rare glimpse into the enigmatic figure behind a scheme that exposed the lengths wealthy families would go to for admission into elite colleges, and angered a nation already grappling with the effects of widespread inequality. From Chris Smith and Jon Karmen, the filmmakers behind Fyre, and starring Matthew Modine as Rick Singer.“
“Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal” will hit Netflix on March 17th, 2021.
