The documentary series “Bad Vegan” debuted on Netflix’s Top 10 list of English-language TV series as No. 5, with 27 million hours of the show seen in the first five days after its launch on March 16. On the film side, “The Adam Project” maintained its team as the No. 1 film for the second week in a row.
From Chris Smith, executive producer of “Tiger King” and director of “Guys: The Greatest Party That Never Happened”, “Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitives” is a four-part documentary series exploring how Sarma Melngailis, celebrity the restaurateur behind the glittering New York hotspot Pure Food and Wine, went from being the queen of vegan cuisine to becoming known as “Vegan Fugitive”. Shortly after meeting a man named Shane Fox on Twitter in 2011, Melngailis begins to drain his restaurant funds and transfer the money to Fox, after convincing her to believe he could make her dream – from expanding her mad empire to make her beloved pitbull immortal – a reality … but only if she continues to obey all his requests without question. A few years later, the couple, who are now married and on lamb after stealing nearly $ 2 million from the restaurant and its staff, are found trapped in a Tennessee motel by law enforcement. Your regret? An indictment made under Fox’s real name, Anthony Strangis, for a Domino’s pizza.
