Netflix Doc Slate Features Tiger King 2


Netflix has revealed a number of new documentaries coming to its slate that explore crimes, cons and scams, led by Tiger King 2.

The global hit Tiger King attracted 64 million households in the first four weeks after its March 2020 premiere. The show will return to Netflix later this year, promising “more madness and mayhem.”

From the filmmakers behind The Imposter, The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman tells the story of one of the world’s most audacious conmen who was convicted in 2005 for stealing fortunes and destroying multiple lives. But now, in a twist, the story reaches into the present day, with a desperate family who fears for their mother’s safety.

The Tinder Swindler, meanwhile, spotlights a prolific conman who posed as a billionaire playboy on Tinder and the women who set out to bring him down.

Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King follows a group of investors-turned-sleuths as they try to unlock the suspicious death of cryptocurrency multimillionaire Gerry Cotten and the missing $250 million they believe he stole from them.

In the series Bad Vegan, celebrity restaurateur Sarma Melngailis becomes the “Vegan Fugitive” when she’s conned out of millions by a man who convinces her that he can expand her food empire and make her beloved pit bull immortal—as long as she never questions his increasingly bizarre requests.
