Trailer For Netflix's True-Crime Satire 'American Vandal'

Among the many things that Netflix has staked their reputation on, it’s been true crime documentaries and series. “Making A Murderer” is the most popular of those efforts, this summer’s “The Keepers” follows closely behind, and the streaming service has been the home of “Team Foxcatcher,” “Amanda Knox,” and so much more. Now, Netflix is poking fun at the whole genre, and maybe themselves, with the satire “American Vandal.”

Co-creators Tony Yacenda (“Pillow Talking“) and Dan Perrault (“Honest Trailers“), and showrunner Dan Lagana (“Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous“), have put together the eight-episode mockumentary, that aims to expose the truth behind a particularly heinous act of high school vandalism. Here’s the official 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?  

Starring Tyler Alvarez , Griffin Gluck , Jimmy Tatro, Camille Hyde, ​Eduardo Franco, Jessica Juarez, Lou Wilson, Camille Ramsey, Calum Worthy and G Hannelius, “American Vandal” hits Netflix on September 15th.​
