Andy King, the break-out star from Netflix’s Fyre Festival documentary, has reportedly been offered his own show.
The veteran event producer was responsible for coordinating the failed festival’s logistics. It was eventually cancelled after opening due to a number of basic inadequacies such as a lack of running water.
During the recent documentary, King revealed that founder Billy Mcfarland asked him to negotiate a customs bill for $175,000. The festival were asked to pay the fine in order to get trucks full of Evian water through customs.
McFarland asks his event producer, Andy King, to go to the office of the Head of Customs and… “suck [his] dick”. King, seeing no other solution, goes off to do it, but is spared the indignity by the customs official.
“I got into my car, to drive across the island to take one for the team. And I got to [the customs officer’s] office, fully prepared to suck his dick,” he explained in the documentary, before revealing that the officer “couldn’t have been nicer,” and just wanted to be paid the required sum of money.
King’s story amassed hundreds of memes and now the event producer says he’s been offered his own show. Speaking to Vanity Fair, he said: “I had three TV show offers this week, from notable networks.
“In the old world of TV it was The Carol Burnett Show and these fun, light-hearted shows that weren’t all crime-related. You see the attractiveness of HGTV today. People love Flip or Flop or Fixer Upper. Let’s just say it’s going to be a show about hosting crazy events — what it takes to make them happen. There will be cliff-hangers, and you’ll get to follow me around and see how I pull them off.”
He’s also reportedly received offers to become the face of various water campaigns.
