Netflix Orders True Crime Satire ‘American Vandal’

Eight Initial Episodes Ordered

Netflix will debut season one of half-hour true-crime satire “American Vandal” on Friday, Sept. 15. From co-creators Tony Yacenda (“Pillow Talking”) and Dan Perrault (“Honest Trailers”), and showrunner Dan Lagana “(Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous”), “American Vandal” 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?

The cast of “American Vandal” includes Tyler Alvarez, Griffin Gluck, Jimmy Tatro, Camille Hyde, Eduardo Franco , Jessica Juarez, Lou Wilson, Camille Ramsey, Calum Worthy and G Hannelius (Christa Carlyle). “American Vandal” is produced for Netflix by CBS Television Studios, Funny Or Die and 3Arts
