Max Original Documentary Series
3 Episodes

Logline: This arced documentary series follows on-going efforts to expose America's "troubled teen" industry (TTI). For six decades and counting, this billion-dollar business has used what it calls "tough love" as a form of treatment despite numerous deaths, countless suicides, life-altering injuries, and instances of child sexual abuse. Until recently, nobody has been able to stop it. The series follows a recurring band of young survivors and whistleblowers and their harrowing first-hand accounts of extreme abuse and cult-like brainwashing at the hands of these programs, starting a social media firestorm in 2021. Survivors, including rap star Bhad Bhabie, are determined to take down this business once and for all. While they have seen impressive victories, the "troubled teen" industry has long been protected by power and is not going down without a fight.

Credits: Talos Films presents TEEN TORTURE INC.; directed produced by Tara Malone; executive produced by Julian P. Hobbs and Elli Hakami.

Through those reflections, she courageously explores personal discoveries including her struggles with mental health issues and bipolar disorder, her family history growing up in a small town in Florida, and how the intensity of the characters she played still impacts who she is today. In addition to Faye, the film features interviews with her son Liam Dunaway O'Neill, as well as her colleagues and friends including Sharon Stone, Mickey Rourke, and James Gray.
