Hulu is adding another docuseries to its roster.

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

The series aims to uncover the truth through a series of in-depth interviews from inside sources that range from local Bahamians, stranded festival-goers, vendors and investors. They will also air multiple hours of exclusive never-before-seen footage, as well as a bevy of leaked documents, emails and recordings. It will stream the untitled project about the Fyre Festival and produce along with the Cinemart, Billboard and Mic.

Founded by rapper Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland, Fyre Festival promised "a cultural moment created from a blend of music, art, and food", with ticket prices in the thousands. Hyped on Instagram by the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, the festival not live up to its lofty promises, as guests were greeted by shoddy tents, prepackaged lunches, and other uninhabitable conditions and security concerns. Lawsuits totaling over $100 million in damages were filed against McFarland and Ja Rule, and last summer McFarland was indicted for wire fraud. The company was behind Jay-Z's Time: The Kalief Browder Story for Spike, and is now working with the hip hop mogul on Paramount Network's Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.

The series will be directed and executive produced by Cinemart's Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason. The deal for the docuseries was brokered by CAA.
