The upcoming Apple TV Plus’ achievement The Big Conn follows an inconceivable real-life tale of a famed advocate, Eric C. Conn, who defrauded the United States taxpayers and government half a billion+ dollars in the most significant Social Security swindling case in history.
The four-episode documentary series will air alongside the Apple TV Plus companion podcast exploring Conn’s deceptive and outrageous behaviour deeper with extra interviews and backstage details. The podcast and The Big Conn film will land on May 6th via Apple Podcasts and Apple TV+, respectively.
The Big Conn's Plot
The premiere episode introduces the con Conn from his background to a sudden rise to triumph. Many viewed his marketing strategies as innovative for good reasons, as he portrays an extravagant public style.
Conn understood the conditions of his clients too well. While the Pikeville and Kentucky communities suffered economic deterioration and work-related accidents from the coal mine closure, Conn took this as his opportunity for fraud.
Later on, the swindler’s life-threatening deceits and wild behaviour came to light. The law enforcement conducts a nationwide hunt to arrest Conn as he tries to flee justice.
