LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) YouTube Originals is releasing a documentary April 3 on boy-band impresario Lou Pearlman that promises to show the seedy underside of the business that created Backstreet Boys and *Nsync.

Former bandmembers Lance Bass, JC Chasez and AJ McLean, plus former heartthrobs like Aaron Carter, are interviewed for “The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story,” which tells the story of how the record producer, who wound up in prison because of a $300 million Ponzi scheme, was not at all kind to the young performers that made him money, with one saying he could have made more money working full-time at Starbucks.

Although Pearlman is credited in the interviews with being the person who helped launch careers that would skyrocket the performers to later fame and fortune, the doc is expected to tell a story about how person who began his career with blimps that fell to the ground turned himself into one of the biggest music impresarios of all time, all the while using the opportunity as a scam.

Pearlman died in federal custody of cardiac arrest in 2016.
