College Admission Scandal to Be Covered in New Netflix Doc
'Operation Varsity Blues' premieres on March 17
Tiger King exec and director behind Netflix's Fyre Festival documentary, Chris Smith, will helm the project. Using voice actor recreations of FBI wiretaps, the doc will focus on how Rick Singer, the scandal's central mastermind and eventual FBI collaborator, persuaded his clients to cheat the system.
Today, Netflix has shared the first teaser, revealing a short recreation of a conversation between Singer and the FBI.
"Is there any risk that this thing blows up in my face?" actor Matthew Modine — who will play Singer — says in the clip. "Like some article comes out that the polo team is selling seats into the school for $250,000?"
"Well no, because she's a water polo player," the other responds.
"But she's not," Singer says.
Watch the teaser below.
