Jussie Smollett’s attempt to gain fame and notoriety not only went terribly wrong, but it also set a dangerous precedent. What was meant to be an unprecedented attack towards an aspiring actor has been reduced to a cringe-worthy punchline; one that will undoubtedly precede any mention of Smollett for years to come.

Former actor Jussie Smollett will be the subject of an explosive new docuseries on Fox Nation, centered around the events leading up to his infamous case that caused a media sensation. Titled “Jussie Smollett: Anatomy of a Hoax,” the five-part series aims to get to the bottom of what really happened in Chicago that fateful night, as well as how and how Smollett’s story fell apart days later thanks to exclusive interviews within the documentary.

According to the outlet, the series will include exclusive interviews with brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, who have yet to speak to the media about Smollett’s elaborate hate crime hoax plan.
Smollett in his first appearance since his short jail sentence, later admitted he was playing a “character” when being interviewed by RobinRoberts after his hoax attack.
A description of the documentary can be found on IMDb which reads, “the intrigue and drama that caused a celebrity to become despised, shocked Chicago and beyond, and left a path of destroyed reputations and careers. The Osundairo brothers will provide all the details related to the false crime.”
After being convicted of five felony counts, including lying to Chicago PD, he was sentenced to 150 days in jail and 30 months probation in December 2021. In addition, he was ordered to pay $120,000 in restitution and $25,000 in fines. In March 2022, he was released from jail pending an appeal.
