Apple gives straight-to-series documentary order from McMillion$ directors

Apple has given a straight-to-series order for an untitled four-part documentary series from  filmmakers Brian Lazarte and James Lee Hernandez, directors of the docuseries McMillion$. Multiple bidders were in the mix and it was a seven-figure deal, according to Deadline.

The docuseries for the Apple TV+ streaming service will tell the true story of one of the largest scams in government history, the article adds. Lazarte & Hernandez will produce through their Fun Meter Productions banner. 

Their 6-part docuseries McMillion$ bowed on HBO in February and told the true story of how $24 million was stolen from the McDonald’s Monopoly game of the 1990s, the mystery mastermind who orchestrated the scam, and the FBI agents who pursued the criminal.
