There will apparently also be hours of exclusive footage, along with leaked documents, emails and sound recordings. The event promised to offer a high-end festival experience, enlisting some of social media's biggest influencers - including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid - to promote the event.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the folks behind the documentary have talked to a myriad of different sources, including local Bahamians, stranded festival-goers, vendors and investors to get a clearer picture of how it all went down. Today, the video streaming giant announced that they landed the rights to a multi-part documentary series that is being developed by Billboard, about the poorly arranged event that went down on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma past year.

It's been almost one year since the shady event organizers attempted to put on Fyre Festival, the luxury destination event in the Bahamas that turned out to be an absolute disaster. 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. A press release reads, "It's a cautionary tale for the millennial generation about the corruptive power of ambition. and instant gratification in the digital age".

McFarland and his Fyre Media face over US$100 million in lawsuits.

The Cinemart will head production with directors Jenner First and Julia Willoughby Nason and executive producer Michael Gasparro.

McFarland pleaded guilty in March to misleading investors and wire fraud; he faces up to 120 months in prison and will be sentenced on June 21st.
