First Teaser for 'Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed' Doc
What happened to Bob Ross? This is not going to be a nice story! Netflix has unveiled a teaser trailer for a new art world documentary called Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed, made by the doc filmmaker Joshua Rofé (director on Hulu's recent "Sasquatch" doc series). Everyone knows Bob Ross, the kind painter with big hair, and everyone loves him. But not many know the real story about what happened to his business, and the greedy people who took over. Unfortunately, this kind of story is so common these days it's not even surprising. But it is still very tragic. Bob Ross brought joy to millions as the world's most famous art instructor. But a battle for his business empire cast a shadow over his happy trees. This trailer doesn't show anything, it's all about the "we can't show you for legal reasons - you have to watch the film to find out the real story." Which is chilling, but I'm sold. I need to watch this! I adore Bob Ross. Who doesn't?
