Bernie Madoff was sentenced for securities fraud, money laundering, mail fraud, and false statements, among other charges, to 150 years in prison and died in April 2021 from severe kidney disease.
In four episodes, Madoff: The Monster of Wall Street showcases how Bernie Madoff founded his investment plans, emerging with new details of the long-completed but not forgotten case.
The show will also look into how Bernie shuttered the lives of thousands of investors who had trusted Wall Street, 'The god of Finance,' with their hard-earned valuables. Netflix will unveil never-witnessed-before evidence of Bernie Madoff himself deep into his business, alongside accounts from his victims, investigators to the case, and whistleblowers.
