The I-Land Season 1

In Netflix's newest limited series thriller The I-Land, a luxury music festival on a tropical island devolves into chaos. 

Sound familiar? From the looks of its first trailer, the series appears to be inspired by Billy McFarland's disastrous 2017 Fyre Festival, which notoriously left hundreds of patrons stranded on an island in the Caribbean after promising them an exclusive music festival getaway.

In Netflix's version, starring Kate Bosworth and Alex Pettyfer and created by Billions' Neil LaBute, things takes a turn for the terrifying as a group of strangers become trapped on the island, are wiped clean of their memories and must fight to survive. "Once you arrive, you'll never leave," reads the trailer, which takes the form of a first splashy, then sinister promotional video seemingly modeled after Fyre Fest's own

The I-Land arrives on Netflix on September 12. Already, two documentaries on the Fyre Fest fiasco have hit streaming services -- Hulu's Fyre Fraud, which was co-produced by Billboard, and Netflix's Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened
