Remember the disastrous Fyre Music Festival? There’s a documentary in the works.

One of the biggest fiascos in the history of music events was 2017’s Fyre Festival, a debacle in the Bahamas that saw chief organizer Billy McFarland sentenced to six years in prison.

What was supposed to be a luxurious festival featuring big-name entertainment pretty much collapsed before it began, taking millions of punters’ dollars with it.  

If this sounds like it’s ripe for a documentary, you’re right.

Fyre, due January 18 and directed by Chris Smith, will chronicle how this disaster unfolded. And while Netflix promises a proper trailer in the coming days, they do have this teaser.
