So what is the show about? From the makers of Tiger King and Fire: The Greatest Party that Never Happened, the synopsis reads: "[The series] explores how Sarma Melngailis, the celebrity restaurateur behind the glittering New York hotspot Pure Food and Wine, went from being the queen of vegan cuisine to being known as the Vegan Fugitive. 

He promised he could make her pet pitbull immortal

"Shortly after meeting a man named Shane Fox on Twitter in 2011, Melngailis begins draining her restaurant’s funds and funnelling the money to Fox after he cons her into believing he could make her dreams — from expanding her food empire to making her beloved pitbull immortal — a reality…but only if she continues to obey his every request without question."
