Netflix Brings Comedy To True-Crime With ‘American Vandal’

Netflix is taking a risk with ‘American Vandal’ as it’s hard to conceptualize this satire, but it’s a well calculated risk as it looks like the series was put together on a tight budget.

Check out the trailer:

If ‘American Vandal’ plays it straight like the trailer, a solid percentage of America will believe this story is real. That in itself is a pro and a con.

‘American Vandal’ explores the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left twenty-seven faculty cars vandalized with phallic images. Over the course of the eight-episode season, an aspiring sophomore documentarian investigates the controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of troubled senior (and known dick-drawer) Dylan Maxwell.

Created by Tony Yacenda and Daniel Perrault, the true-crime satire is comprised of eight 30-minute episodes for season one. Yacenda directs the series starring Tyler Alvarez, Griffin Gluck, Jimmy Tatro, Camille Hyde, Eduardo Franco, Jessica Juarez, Lou Wilson, Camille Ramsey,​ Calum Worthy,​ and G Hannelius.
