Hulu is adding another docuseries to its roster. The series is now slated for a 2019 release. The untitled production, now in development by Billboard, Mic and the Cinemart, will see release on Hulu.

The doc will examine what happened behind the scenes that lead to disaster, featuring interviews with local Bahamians, stranded festivalgoers, vendors and investors.

Now, the organizational shitshow that shocked the entertainment world will be explored even further with a new documentary series, as The Hollywood Reporter notes.

Organized by Fyre Media founder Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, the Fyre Festival was supposed to be an ultra-luxury concert experience that was plagued from the get-go by myriad problems with security, accommodations and fan and artist relations. But in the days leading up to the festival, it became apparent that it had been falsely advertised and all the music guests pulled out. Lawsuits totaling over $100 million in damages were filed against McFarland and Ja Rule, and last summer McFarland was indicted for wire fraud. Hulu said the docuseries will serve as a cautionary tale for the millennial generation about the corruptive power of ambition, social media and instant gratification in a digital age. The Cinemart will head production on the series with directors Jenner First and Julia Willoughby Nason and executive producer Michael Gasparro; John Amato and Dana Miller will executive produce for Billboard; Angela Freedman and Sharmi Ghandi will executive produce for Mic.
