Secrets of the Chippendale Murders on SBS Viceland – The 4-part documentary event Secrets of the Chippendales Murders gives a look beyond the bright lights into a dark world of drugs, arson, a love triangle and a murder.
Chippendales was a nightclub that aimed to allure and please women with its scantily clad male dancers and vivacious music, and quickly advanced toward a pop culture phenomenon, until it came crashing down.
Through exclusive interviews, never-before-seen crime scene video and declassified FBI surveillance audio, the limited series unravels the hidden tale of how sex, jealousy, arson, hefty-bags filled with cash and mafia shakedowns all led up to one of the most outrageous murders in American history.
Series One, Episode One: The Perfect Man
In the 1980s, Chippendales was a worldwide phenomenon. At the center of its meteoric growth are Steve Banerjee, who left India to live the American dream, and Nick De Noia, a children’s television producer with a talent for turning beefcakes into Broadway-esque dancers.
Their partnership built an empire but behind the bright lights and scantily clad dancers was a dark world of drugs, murder, and unbridled ambition.
