New Netflix Series Exposes Horrors of Animal Farming

Rotten—Netflix' new six-part docu-series—uncovers the corruption behind animal agriculture.

New Netflix docu-series Rotten—produced by Zero Point Zero—is set to debut on January 5. The series aims to expose the corruption behind the eating habits of Americans—including those present in the animal agriculture industry. “In the last 50 years,” the trailer for the series states, “food has turned into a commodity to be traded like a stock or a bond. With money to be had, there will be fraud in the marketplace.” The six-part docu-series will focus on various aspects of animal agriculture, including spotlights on the dairy, fish, and honey industries—the latter of which will be discussed with a focus on “Honeygate,” the largest food-fraud investigation in recent history. “If you eat food,” the trailer states, “this is an issue you need to worry about.”
