An absolutely nuts true crime docuseries involving a pizza delivery man who robs a bank, a bomb and 700lbs of cheese is coming to Netflix on May 11 and it sounds almost too crazy to be true. 

Evil Genius: the True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist tells the true story of a pizza delivery man who robbed a bank, then was killed by a bomb fastened around his neck.

Known as the 'pizza bomber heist', the truth behind this bizarre incident took years to unravel...

"In 2003 in Erie, Pennsylvania, a robbery gone wrong and a terrifying public murder capture the nation’s attention, and a bizarre collection of Midwestern hoarders, outcasts, and lawbreakers play cat-and-mouse with the FBI. Eventually, a middle-aged mastermind named Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong — once a town beauty, now a woman grappling with mental illness — is arrested. 

But 15 years later, Evil Genius proves there’s more to the conspiracy and murders than was ever thought."

Get ready for this four-part series that's sure to have you hooked.
