Watch the Dramatic Trailer for Netflix’s New Food Documentary Series ‘Rotten’

The six-part show focusing on corruption in the food industry drops in January

Having already addressed the worldwide problem of food waste, Zero Point Zero, the production company that regularly collaborates with Anthony Bourdain, is about to spotlight varying forms of corruption that plague the food industry. Rotten, a six-part documentary series, is set to premiere on Netflix January 5.

Each episode will take on a different angle, according to Deadline. For example, the first installment, titled “Lawyers, Guns, and Honey,” intends to explore “the new global honey business and largest food fraud investigation and prosecution in history — a scam known as Honeygate.” Other topics covered include inequality in the mass-market poultry industry and “massive criminal exploitation” in American fisheries.

Zero Point Zero’s most recent production was the feature-length documentary Wasted! The Story of Food Waste. That film has garnered mostly positive reviews from critics.

For a sneak peek at Rotten, watch the trailer above.
