Netflix's new true crime series tackle Trump Inc. and the food industry

Netflix's new true crime series tackle Trump Inc. and the food industry”

Another episode will tackle the ride of Trump Inc. and delve into Donald Trump's business career and focus on branding, including his business failures.

Dirty Money is helmed by Academy Award-winning director-producer Alexy Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room). The series will use first-hand accounts from business perpetrators and victims, along with archived video footage.

The streaming service announced premiere dates for Rotten on January 5 and Dirty Money on January 26.

Gibney directed the first episode, "HARD NOx", about Volkswagen's "corporate deceit" and "the unholy alliance" between the government and automakers that allowed the latter "to put tens of thousands of lives at risk - all for the sake of a $500 part".

"THE CONFIDENCE MAN" tells the story of Trump and TRUMP, Inc. and how the corporation's bad business decisions but successful marketing strategies made him the president. Some of the business deals that will be questioned include when a group of payday leaders made millions off small loans with inflated interest rates and unclear rules, a Big Pharma scam that made it almost impossible for thousands to acquire lifesaving drugs and a Canadian scandal in which $20 million worth of syrup disappeared and concluded in a battle between the maple syrup makers and cartels. The series takes a behind-the-scenes look at food production to expose underlying corruption, waste and the serious consequences of our daily eating habits. Watch the trailer for Rotten below. Rotten (Jan. 5) will focus on the seedy underbelly of the food industry, with episodes about food fraud, illegal fishmongering, and "a David-and-Goliath tale of loyalty, betrayal and revenge on the American garlic scene".
