Just as Lori Loughlin steps out into the public following her release from prison at the end of December 2020, Netflix's latest documentary is about to ruffle up some feathers. The 'Full House' actress was released after serving nearly two months in prison for her role in the high-profile college admissions scandal.

The actress admitted last May to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, while her husband, fashion designer Massimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud. Netflix's documentary, 'Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal' will take a look at the scandal in which 50 parents, including Loughlin and fellow actress Felicity Huffman, allegedly bribed their children's way into prestigious universities.
