American Vandal arrives as true-crime fare - scripted and unscripted - has exploded on the small screen following the breakout success of shows like Making a Murderer, The Jinx and FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, among others.

"American Vandal" launches globally on Netflix on September 15.

"The ball hairs - they're different". Indeed, American Vandal is a spoof series, a proverbial "Weird Al" Yankovic of true crime series, created to utilize a meme at a point when it's still surging in the zeitgeist consciousness. Not unlike its now iconic true-crime predecessors, the addictive American Vandal will leave one question on everyone's minds until the very end: "Who drew the dicks?". Over the course of eight half-hour episodes, it will explore what happens in the wake of a high school prank that leaves several faculty members' cars vandalized with phallic imagery.

American Vandal will manifest as an 8-episode Netflix series.

YouTuber Jimmy Tatro stars as Dylan Maxwell, a "known dick drawer" who stands accused of - what else? - drawing dicks all over his high school.

As a play on the current cultural phenomenon of bingeing true crime content on Netflix, Netflix announced Thursday a new true crime satire American Vandal.

Netflix has given the go-ahead to a new show parodying the dark documentary crime dramas produced by amusing or Die and CBS Television Studios, THR reports.
