Hulu is calling Fyre Fraud a "true crime comedy," and the film features interviews with ticket-holders, whistleblowers and festival co-founder Billy McFarland who has since been convicted of fraud and sentenced to six years in prison. "Billy McFarland offers us a window into the mind of a con artist, the insidious charm of the fraudster and how they can capture our imaginations, our investment and our votes in the age of Trump," Fyre Fraud directors Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason said in a statement. "McFarland's staggering ambition metastasized in a petri dish of late­stage capitalism, corporate greed and predatory branding, all weaponized by our fear of missing out."

Fyre Fraud is streaming on Hulu now and you can check out the trailer above. Netflix's Fyre drops January 18th.
