Inspired by the widely publicized college admissions scandal, the movie — which was initially greenlit in July — purports to chronicle the real-life story of how more than 50 individuals were exposed for criminally conspiring to influence admissions decisions at America’s top universities. Although actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were two of the biggest names involved in the scandal, which first made headlines in March, Miller and Kirshner will not be portraying the women. Rather, the College Admissions Scandal follows two wealthy mothers — interior designer Caroline (Miller) and financial services firm owner Bethany (Kirshner) — who share an obsession with getting their teenagers into the best possible colleges.
When college admissions consultant Rick Singer (played by Stargate SG-1‘s Michael Shanks) offers a side door into those prestigious institutions, Caroline and Bethany willingly partake… until Rick cooperates with the FBI and pleads guilty, forcing the mothers to face the consequences of their crimes.
