Gunther’s Millions will join the ranks of Tiger King, The Tinder Swindler, The Making of a Murderer, and many other notable Netflix-produced investigative documentary miniseries with its upcoming four one-hour episodes. The dog-gets-rich storyline, on the other hand, makes it appear to be a much lighter and more hilarious offering than the popular streaming service is used to. Here’s everything you need to know about the docuseries.
When will Gunther’s Millions air on Netflix?
Gunther’s Millions will premiere on Netflix on February 1 at 3 am ET/ 12 am PT/1.30 pm IST. The total running duration is around four hours, with each episode lasting approximately 60 minutes. The Netflix concept is to release all of its series episodes at once rather than one by one each week. So, that its audience can watch them individually or binge the entire show, as many people do these days.

Gunther’s Millions: What is the docuseries about?
Maurizio Mian, an Italian entrepreneur, and pharmaceutical heir, appears to be at the heart of the dog’s winnings hoax, the cult-like atmosphere that surrounds the dog’s filthy rich lifestyle, and some secret scientific operation that could possibly be cloning the dog to keep the outrageous ruse afloat. In addition to Mian, the most famous name in the miniseries is German countess Karlotta Leibenstein. She died in 1992 and left her $80 million estate to her dog, Gunther. Mian’s investments throughout the years are allegedly how the net became worth roughly $400 million, but the investigative docuseries appears to debunk these claims.
Gunther’s Millions looks to intrigue and tantalize viewers with its expose of an empire surrounding the probably oblivious German shepherd, with its breakdown of opulence gone mad involving shady real estate deals, shocking social experiments, and one of the largest tax fraud schemes in American history.
