Once you finish the entertaining six-part docuseries, there are plenty of other things new to HBO to watch.

It’s been a while since the dueling Fyre Festival documentaries; to fill that space in our hearts is McMillions, a six-part docuseries about a 12-year scam involving McDonald’s annual Monopoly sweepstakes. (Spoiler alert: The perpetrator is not who you would expect.)
