A story about the ugly history of fraternity hazing at Penn State and how it factored into the excruciating death of a pledge, Tim Piazza, in 2017 has now been picked up by Hulu for a limited series release. The series by the former head of NBC will be based off a 2017 article in The Atlantic by Caitlin Flanagan that covered the agonizing details of Piazza’s injury and death after falling down a set of basement stairs at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. Her article also chronicled the persistence of hazing over the years despite outrage by parents and efforts by schools.
