EXCLUSIVE: McG’s production company Wonderland Sound and Vision is developing a new documentary series based on the alleged crimes of Anthony Farrer, a luxury watch dealer and social media influencer who ran a consignment shop in Beverly Hills.
Farrer, whose company was called Timepiece Gentleman, collected luxury watches from customers, promising to sell them by mail order for no more than a 5% fee. Instead, he collected exotic cars, enjoyed extravagant trips and dinners, and rented a $100,000-a-month penthouse while running his company from November 2022 to August 2023.
The case came to a head when the whistleblower posted a secret conversation between him and Farrer on TikTok, in which Farrer admitted to having lost $5 million in funds from his clients and investors. According to the report, Farrer defrauded at least 20 victims NOW.
The protagonist of the scandal was a determined group on Reddit that had suspected a crime for years. Members of the group used their collective resources to troll Farrer and help solve the case.
Farrer was arrested on November 7 on charges of wire fraud; his arraignment is scheduled for December 14.
McG, Mary Viola and Corey Marsh will executive produce along with investigative journalist David Kushner, who also writes the exposé. Kushner’s story has already been sold to a major publication, and Wonderland controls the TV and film rights.
Wonderland is repped by WME and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern. Kushner is repped by The Gotham Group.
