Created by Emmy Award-nominated filmmakers James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte, The Big Conn is produced by FunMeter (McMillion$), with Hernandez, Lazarte, and Peter King serving as executive producers. Co-executive produced by Matt Kaye and Shannon Pence.
All four parts of the series will premiere alongside an Apple TV+ Original companion podcast that will explore Conn’s con and outrageous lifestyle further with additional interviews and behind-the-scenes details.
The TV series will make its world debut at SXSW with a screening of the first two episodes on Wednesday 16th March. The full series and podcast will then stream worldwide on Apple TV+ and Apple Podcasts on 5th May.
It marks a growing trend from Apple to produce companion podcasts for its shows, including The Problem With Jon Stewart, Foundation and For All Mankind.
