McMillions, a documentary series chronicling the stranger-than-fiction story of an ex-cop turned security auditor who rigged McDonald’s Monopoly game promotion for a decade, stealing millions of dollars and building a vast network of co-conspirators across the U.S.

McMillions will draw on exclusive firsthand accounts and archival footage, featuring: the FBI agents who brought down the gaming scam; McDonald’s corporate executives, who were themselves defrauded; the lawyers who tried the case; and the culprits and prizewinners who profited from the complicated scheme, as well as the individuals who were often unwittingly duped into being a part of the ruse.

The series comes from Unrealistic Ideas, the non-scripted production company launched by Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Archie Gips and producing partners James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte, who will serve as directors on the documentary series.

Watched the first 2 episodes last night. I enjoyed it! I didn't know a ton about this, so it's fun seeing how crazy it all is.

Glad to hear you liked it wags. My podcast crapped on how slow it is.

Brad, it was going to be a drama movie but Disney cancelled that. I don't know of another documentary.
