In an Instagram post in the late hours of Wednesday, the producer announced his upcoming projects.
He said the decision to make the series is for the sake of his ‘scammers’.
“For my scammers I gotta do this one, Hushpuppy series coming soon ! GLGGreenLightGang i don’t miss #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #gunitfilmandtv,” he wrote alongside some pictures of the convicted fraudster.
Daily Trust had reported how a United States District Court sitting at the Central District of California on Monday found Abbas guilty of laundering proceeds of a school financing scam, business email compromise and other fraudulent cyber schemes.
Justice Otis Wright II ordered the Instagram celebrity to pay $1.7m in restitution to two fraud victims.
Abbas pleaded guilty in April 2021 to one count of conspiracy to engage in money laundering.
He admitted to attempting to steal more than $1.1m from someone who wanted to fund a new children’s school in Qatar, court documents in California say.
His luxurious lifestyle came to an abrupt end in 2020, when he was arrested while living in Dubai.
