From the directors of Fyre Fraud, new documentary series LuLaRich delves into the world of LuLaRoe, the billion dollar clothing empire accused of misleading thousands of women with their multi-level marketing platform.

Through interviews with co-founders DeAnne and Mark Stidham and former LuLaRoe employees, the series unveils how it all went wrong for the company, leading to dozens of lawsuits and stories of cult-like behaviour.

"LuLaRich is a modern comedy of errors with important social commentary," the co-directors said, according to Vulture. 

"We knew from day one that the world needed another look at this wacky MLM turned dumpster fire, and think this could be the birth of a whole new doc genre... True-Comedy."

If you liked On Becoming a God in Central Florida, you'll love LuLaRich.

Meanwhile, new headteacher Hope (played by Jemima Kirke) tries to return Moordale to a pillar of excellence, Aimee discovers feminism, Jackson gets a crush, and a lost voicemail still looms. Prepare for commitment animals, alien phenomena, vulva cupcakes, and much more of Madam Groff."

Grandpa Ted (Michael Caton) is also returning to the series and is struggling to find his place in the family.

According to the press release: "As Dave enjoys his newfound freedom, Julie must reconcile her responsibilities to the family. They might not be under the same roof, but the same honesty, love and laughter bonds them more tightly now than ever before."
