Netflix just dropped the new trailer for the upcoming documentary based on the infamous 2019 college admissions scandal, “Operation Varsity Blues”.
The movie, which uses real conversations recreated from FBI wiretaps, looks back at the scandal that saw celebs like “Full House” actor Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, as well as “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman, end up behind bars.
“Is there any risk that this thing blows up in my face?” one parent asks Rick Singer (played by Matthew Modine), the man behind the operation.
