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.

Through interviews with survivors of Fogle’s abuse, the docuseries depicts how “The Subway Guy” was a monster hiding behind his public persona.
