Apple TV+ has today shared the first trailer for the upcoming true crime documentary series The Big Conn ahead of its May 6 premiere.

The documentary is produced by FunMeter, the same group behind the hugely popular McMillion$ documentary and was created by Emmy Award-nominated filmmakers James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte.

The documentary tells the true story of Eric C. Conn, a man who defrauded Americans out of huge sums of money. A comparison podcast will also be made available to explore the story further.

Apple TV+ today released the trailer for "The Big Conn," the new four-part documentary series that tells the unbelievable true story of larger-than-life attorney, Eric C. Conn, who defrauded the government and taxpayers over half a billion dollars in the largest Social Security fraud case in United States history. All four parts of the series will premiere alongside an Apple TV+ Original companion podcast that will explore Conn's con and outrageous lifestyle further with additional interviews and behind-the-scenes details. "The Big Conn" series and podcast will make their global debut May 6 on Apple TV+ and Apple Podcasts, respectively.

Check out the trailer to get a feel for what is to come from The Big Conn and prepare to check that Apple TV+ subscription hasn't lapsed!

You will of course need an Apple TV+ or Apple One subscription to watch, but at $4.99 per month — and less with Apple One — it really is a no-brainer at this point.
