Poorly structured and hard to follow retelling of a big 1980s crime story. There's so much to examine here, the gang of narcissistic young men, the casual escalation into murder, the circus of a trial. But could've been better presented.

Description

In 1980s Los Angeles, a group of prep school boys  got together to make investments together, get rich quick, and live large. But headed by a handsome and charismatic leader named Joe Hunt, the members of the self-proclaimed “Billionaire Boys Club” get sucked deeper into twisted schemes of kidnapping, torture, and revenge. The boys must stick together, or risk prison - or worse.

From the makers of The Wonderland Murders, Young Charlie, and The Dating Game Killer, this six-part series is co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Emmy-nominated actor Timothy Olyphant.

Hosted by Golden Globe winner Taraji P. Henson. 

Have you ever had a dream? Something you wanted so bad you just couldn’t let it go? For a group of kids in Harlem in the Eighties, their dreams would change pop music forever. Teddy Riley, Timmy Gatling, and Aaron Hall form a group called Guy that would fuse hip-hop and R&B and launch a new sound. By the early Nineties, the New Jack Sound dominated the pop music charts: Bell Biv DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Boyz II Men, and many more. But the rise of the New Jack sound would come at a cost, and not everyone would make it to the top. From Wondery and Universal Music Group, Jacked is a story of friendship, gangsters, double-crosses, and big dreams.

Joe Hunt is brought to justice and put on trial, but the proceedings feel more like a soap opera. There’s a biased judge, a defense attorney who's out of his league, and the son of a TV judge all battling it out. But when the verdict finally comes down, no one will be more surprised than Joe Hunt.
