The scandal will be on the tube soon enough.
Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are two of the most famous names included in the largest college bribery scandal in history, involving a total of 50 people. While Felicity has pleaded guilty and apologized for her wrongdoing, Lori is taking a different approach by looking for all kinds of reasons why she can successfully plead not guilty.

According to numerous reports, it looks as though the whole scandal has now been greenlit to be turned into a television series. Annapurna Television has landed the rights for the project, that has a book in the works dubbed Accepted that's being written by Wall Street Journal reporters Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz. D.V. DeVincentis known for The People v. O.J. Simpson and High Fidelity will then adapt the novel into a series that has yet to be picked up by a network.
The case has been dubbed Operation Varsity Blues by federal investigators and the project will detail the crazy lengths parents went from photoshopping images to dropping thousands of dollars in bribes with coaches and college officials, ensuring their children get admitted to prestigious schools. The ringleader of it all was William "Rick" Singer, who ran the shady business.
