The Big Conn chronicles the unbelievable true story of the larger-than-life attorney, Eric C Conn, who defrauded the government over half a billion dollars in the largest Social Security fraud case in history.
The streamer is also bringing a companion podcast which will explore Conn’s con and outrageous lifestyle further with additional interviews and behind-the-scenes details. The podcast will also make its debut on Apple Podcasts on May 5.
The Big Conn is produced by FunMeter, with Hernandez, Lazarte, and Peter King serving as executive producers. Matt Kaye and Shannon Pence serve as co-executive producers.
