Realscreen is partnering with filmmaker and executive producer Chuck Braverman and his Westdoc Online video interview series to present his discussions with acclaimed documentarians and non-fiction content industry figures.
In Westdoc’s newest episode, Braverman speaks with James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte, the creators of the Apple TV+ docuseries The Big Conn, which is produced by their company FunMeter. The four-part documentary focuses on attorney Eric C. Conn, who defrauded the U.S. government of more than half a billion dollars in the largest social security fraud case ever.
Braverman discusses the development of Hernandez and Lazarte’s new series, the true-crime tale at the center of it, and covers the directors’ previous doc McMillion$, a 2020 HBO series about the McDonald’s Monopoly scam that occurred in the 1990s.
