HBO passed on Wild Wild Country because there was no celebrity attached
According to Maclain Way and Chapman Way, they received a "very cold" reaction while shopping their sex cult documentary. HBO, for instance, wanted to know if a celebrity was involved with the cult -- or if a celebrity would agree to serve as narrator.

Wild Wild Country left out a gruesome 1990 murder committed by a former follower
The Way brothers say a grisly 1990 murder committed by a former Rajneesh follower never came up in their research. "Even if it did, we would have not included it in Wild Wild Country," Maclain and Chapman Way said in a joint statement. "Our series primarily focuses on the events in Eastern Oregon from 1981-1985, and this horrific murder occurred five years after the collapse of the commune in Northern California."

Wild Wild Country directors still can't decide which side is right and wrong
Chapman Way, who co-directed the Netflix cult docuseries with his brother Maclain, says: "I’ve said this before but, we’ve been working on it for four years and it’s completely locked and edited, and I still wake up in the middle of the night going, 'Yeah, but this group did this,' and then, 'Wait, but then they did this,' And I teeter back and forth from thinking one group’s right, one group’s wrong, to both groups are wrong, maybe both groups are right. It almost changes on a daily basis still, even working on this four years later."
