Netflix has taken serialized documentaries to a whole different level. Now they are about to break the mold again with their latest true-crime series. It’s an in-depth look at a prank gone wrong at an American high school and the many lives it forever changed. A wrongly accused teen, a high school in chaos, a modern day witch hunt, and a filmmaker intent on finding the truth are what drives this search for justice. It’s also produced by the guys behind Funny or Die. I had you for a second.

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 *cough* 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?

Was it this guy?

The Cast

The cast includes: Tyler Alvarez, Griffin Gluck, Jimmy Tatro, Camille Hyde, Eduardo Franco, Lukas Gage, Jessica Juarez, Lou Wilson, Camille Ramsey , Calum Worthy, and G. Hannelius.
