Check out the preview for this week’s new season finale episode below from ABC.
“The Hollywood Con“
For several years, a person dubbed the “Con Queen” had been pretending to be various high-powered female film-industry executives. She allegedly offered Hollywood hopefuls a dream job with lucrative pay—but with a catch. To secure the job, the workers had to pay their own way to Jakarta, with the promise of being reimbursed. However, on arrival in Indonesia, there was a never-ending carousel of delays and excuses, along with additional cash payments for driver fees, photography permits and more.
Ultimately, the “Con Queen” disappeared, leaving the workers out of pocket for the thousands of dollars they spent abroad without a job and dashed dreams. This episode follows journalists and “Chameleon: The Hollywood Con Queen” podcasters Josh Dean and Vanessa Grigoriadis as they investigate and reveal the true identity of the suspect who was finally arrested in November of 2020. The episode features exclusive television interviews with multiple Hollywood hopefuls and those closest to the case.
“The Con” is produced by ABC News. David Sloan is senior executive producer, and Carrie Cook and Colleen Halpin serve as executive producers.
