Netflix has just released a trailer for an upcoming docudrama called, “Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal” which is based on the widely reported eponymous scandal that helped kids of the rich and famous get into colleges through what the scheme’s ringleader termed “side doors.”
In that scandal, many parents admitted to paying a corrupt admissions counselor to rig their kids’ SAT or ACT scores. Others helped bribe college coaches and pitched their teens as star athletes, even if they didn’t play the sport.
Some high profile stars were involved including Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, as well as Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman. Both Loughlin and her husband served jail time as did Huffman.
The film dramatizes real conversations recreated from FBI wiretaps and promises to be as salacious as the scam itself.
