Jared From Subway: Catching A Monster trailer chronicles the fall of an iconic spokesman

If you ate Subway from 2000 to 2015, then there’s a good chance the name Jared Fogle rings a bell. The story goes that Fogle lost over 240 pounds between 1998 and 1999 by rearranging his diet around Subway sandwiches. For the next 15 years, Fogle was Subway’s spokesperson, becoming a global sensation and motivational success story. However, Fogle was hiding a dark secret behind closed doors. He was a pedophile, and the ensuing investigation to bring down Fogle is the subject of Jared From Subway: Catching A Monster.

ID’s three-part docuseries Catching A Monster chronicles Fogle’s meteoric rise as an inspirational hero and his tragic fall as a sexual predator. In 2015, Fogle and his business partner, Russell Taylor, were arrested and charged with multiple allegations of child endangerment. Many people know that Fogle was charged, but how those charges were discovered is the subject of the series.

One of the key figures in the true crime series is Florida journalist Rochelle Herman, who worked undercover for the FBI to capture disturbing and troubling confessions from Fogle. Herman’s findings eventually led the authorities to raid Fogle’s home ,where they found evidence of child pornography. Through interviews with survivors of Fogle’s abuse, the docuseries depicts how “The Subway Guy” was a monster hiding behind his public persona.

Gary Oldman in Slow Horses.

December may prove to be a quiet month when it comes to the best new shows to stream. But at least for the first weekend of December, you still have options. Apple TV+ has premiered the third season of its underrated show Slow Horses, while  Netflix has a new action comedy, Obliterated, that critics absolutely hate. But action fans seem to be enjoying the show so far. The only other noteworthy addition this week is the new comedy Bookie on Max.

Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Max, Apple TV+, Disney+, Paramount+, and Peacock have their work cut out for them in terms of providing content in 2024, especially when the effects of the writers' and actors' strikes catch up with them. Right now, the high prices of these streaming services are being felt by their subscribers. If you need some relief from those prices, the you should consider signing up for the ad-supported tiers. In the meantime, here's our weekly roundup of the best new shows to stream.

What’s new on Disney+ in December 2023
A team of proto-Avengers from What If? season 2.

While we don't necessarily want to look a gift horse in the mouth, Disney+ is making some baffling programming choices in December. As much as we're looking forward to the second season of Marvel Studios' What If? animated series, the decision to blow off nine episodes daily is shocking. 2024 is bound to be light on scripted shows and movies because of the twin Hollywood strikes, and Disney+ could have gotten nine weeks of programming out of What If? season 2.

Regardless, December is going to be a very active month on Disney+, and that should make subscribers very happy. The season 2 finale of Tim Allen's The Santa Clauses is one of the highlights, as are three new specials for Doctor Who, the streaming debut of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, and a brand new original series for Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
