According to Netflix as quoted by Deadline, "Operation Varsity Blues offers a rare glimpse into the enigmatic figure behind a scheme that exposed the lengths wealthy families would go to for admission into elite colleges and angered a nation already grappling with the effects of widespread inequality."

The conspiracy to guarantee admission to elite institutions was arranged and designed by a man named Rick Singer, who will be dramatized by Matthew Modine in the film. Directed by Chris Smith, the docu offers an "innovative combination of interviews and narrative recreations of the FBI's wiretapped conversations between Singer and his clients."

Other main cast includes Josh Stamberg (Bill McGlashan), Wallace Langham (Gordon Caplan), and David Starzyk (Bruce Isackson).

The docu might not focus on infamous stars Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman reports Bustle. However, the trailer shows a brief appearance of the A-listers.
