"The story of the largest college admissions scam in the United States is making its way to Hollywood.

Annapurna Television said on Tuesday it had optioned the rights to an upcoming book and planned to turn it into a one-hour limited series.

Some 50 people, including former "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman and 'Full House' actress Lori Loughlin, have been accused by prosecutors in Boston of engaging in schemes that involved cheating on college entrance exams, faking athletic achievements, and paying millions of dollars in bribes to get their children into U.S. universities." ...

    Hallmark fired her

    But they left it open for her to return to the show 'When Calls the heart.' Her character was 'called' to the east coast to care for a sick mother.

    I thought it was very unfair that the actor who played her son on the show was also sent east to care for the sick mother. Poor kid didn't do anything wrong and isn't even of college age so didn't cheat to get in.

    Why would anybody want to watch this show? I've had enough with it just on the news. All the participants should get what they deserve and be done with it.

    There's a new podcast about it too - I started listening and I think it's interesting. It's called Gangster Capitalism.
