Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, Full House actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli and TPG Growth founder Bill McGlashan were among Singer's clients.

When the scandal erupted in 2019, it became front-page news. Not only did it involve household names, but it also illustrated the massive gap between the haves and have nots and the ways that members of the one per cent had been able to effectively game the system.

Smith has been a crack chronicler of recent scandals and outsized personalities. He directed Fyre, a look at Billy McFarland, the hustler behind the disastrous Fyre Festival. Operation Varsity Blues reunites Smith with Jon Karmen, who produced that documentary.

Smith also executive produced Tiger King, which became a sensation for Netflix when it aired in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket) will star as Singer. The filmmakers say they will use a combination of interviews and narrative recreations of the FBI's wiretapped conversations between Singer and his clients.
