Netflix's new documentary series perfectly takes the piss out of all other Netflix documentary series
Having built it up, they are now helping tear it down.
Netflix really helped in putting the serialised true-crime documentary on the map thanks to the likes of Making A Murderer and The Keepers.
But with every last person you know having some variation on the sentence of "Oh, if you thought Making A Murderer was good, then you will absolutely lose your mind over (BLANK)", and the hunger for true-crime reality docs reaching fever pitch, Netflix are taking the piss of themselves and of the genre with American Vandal.
Coming from the guys who make those amazing Honest Trailers, here is the synopsis:
American Vandal is a half-hour true-crime satire that 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.
Not unlike its now iconic true-crime predecessors, the addictive American Vandal will leave one question on everyone's minds until the very end: Who drew the dicks?
We can find out who did, indeed, draw those dicks from 15 September.
