FYRE: documentary about the unraveling of the exclusive festival - trailer

One of the breakout stars from Netflix's Fyre Festival documentary looks set to get his own TV show.

Andy King was the responsible for coordinating logistics at the festival, which was eventually cancelled after the organisers failed to provide adequate living conditions for ticket buyers.

King gathered an online following thanks to his candid confessions during the documentary, at one saying he was "fully prepared to suck dick" upon festival organiser Billy Mcfarland's orders, in hopes of water getting to festivalgoers.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, the veteran festival producer said multiple American networks have come forward with show ideas.

“I had three TV show offers this week, from notable networks,” King said. Discussing what sort of show he would pitch, he added: “In the old world of TV it was The Carol Burnett Show and these fun, light-hearted shows that weren’t all crime-related.

"Let’s just say it’s going to be a show about hosting crazy events — what it takes to make them happen. There will be cliff-hangers, and you’ll get to follow me around and see how I pull them off.”

Since both the Netflix and Hulu Fyre Festival documentaries were released, news emerged that the models associated with the event may soon face subpoenas over the payments they received. Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, and Emily Ratajkowski have all been criticised for their involvement in the event, which eventually led to chaos.
