Netflix Drops New Teaser for College Admissions Scandal Documentary 'Operation Varsity Blues' - Watch!

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.

Lori Loughlin Wants Her Criminal Case to Be Dismissed

Lori Loughlin has filed a motion to have her criminal case, which is part of the college admissions scandal, be dismissed.

The 55-year-old Full House actress and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were charged with conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery, along with other charges. They have pleaded not guilty.

It has been said that Rick Singer, the man at the center of the scandal, was told by the FBI to lie about the couple’s knowledge of bribes being paid.

People reports that the memo filed by Loughlin and Giannulli‘s lawyers says “the Government belatedly disclosed Singer’s contemporaneous written notes revealing that those recordings were a sham carefully engineered by government agents in an effort to ‘entrap’ Defendants and ‘nail’ them ‘at all costs.’”

The couple was originally accused of paying $500,000 to Singer and the Key Worldwide Foundation to have their daughters designated as recruits for the USC crew team, even though neither of them were crew team members before.
