In Forbidden America, Louis explores how online has collided with the real world, helping the far-right build solidarity, creating power shifts in the porn industry & seeing rap artists live-streaming feuds.
Forbidden America, according to the press release, will see Theroux innvestigate "the impact of the internet and social media on some of the most controversial corners of American entertainment".
Speaking about the upcoming series, Theroux said, "These three documentaries were tough to make. They required delicate access conversations. They feature scenes and confrontations that are shocking and upsetting. But they are also powerful depictions of a world that has become strange in ways we could never have imagined just 10 years ago."
