American Vandal has the potential to be brilliant. A new Netflix series that parodies the True Crime documentaries that have permeated television lately. This is the story of a young filmmaker who thinks someone in his high school has been framed for vandalizing the teacher's cars. The senior accused of doing the vandalism, Dylan Maxwell, is expelled… the evidence is that the images drawn were all penises and Dylan is know for drawn those very same objects. The only question left is will #whodrewthedicks catch on as a hashtag?
From co-creators Tony Yacenda (Pillow Talking) and Dan Perrault (Honest Trailers), and showrunner Dan Lagana (Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous), 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 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?
American Vandal, an 8-part series, debuts September 15th.
The trailer is NSFW as they say the word "dick" a lot.
