Louis Theroux Forbidden America docuseries is hitting our screens and as any fan of his shows know, this new series is likely to have viewers hooked from the get-go.
It feels like only yesterday that Louis Theroux posed shirtless and sweaty in a 'thirst trap’ photo, sending fans into a frenzy. The British documentarian obviously isn't done sending his fans wild, if his brand new series is anything to go by.
After Louis Theroux announced a new Tiger King documentary, fans may have thought he'd be taking a break from filming in the US. However, his new show sees him travel the length and breadth of the country.
During the three-part series, he meets people who are shaping the world and minds of their followers from small corners of the US. As Louis himself put it in an article for the Guardian, "Now we face a chorus of maverick voices – some hateful, some benign, all of them disruptive, and no longer confined to trailers in Montana."
The purpose of his trip is to explore the impact of social media and the internet on some of the most controversial corners of American society.
This includes far-right activists who proudly peddle hateful, antisemitic, homophobic, and racist ideologies; rappers who commodify their OTT lifestyle; and adult performers who earn money via subscription-based social media accounts.
Speaking to The Independent Louis revealed that the three-part series was 'tough to make', and features, "scenes and confrontations that are shocking and upsetting."
