and Hulu could face subpoenas for Fyre Festival documentaries 

Their documentaries, released just days apart, captivated audiences and put Fyre Festival back in the headlines two years after its famous flame out. 

But now and Hulu could face subpoenas for the exclusive footage they used to show the rise and fall of the doomed music festival. 

Trustee Gregory Messer filed the new subpoenas in bankruptcy court on Tuesday and wants to know if either streaming site paid for use of the footage. 

'In order to create the documentaries, both Hulu and used unique behind-the-scenes footage of the festival,' Messer said in the filling obtained by Bloomberg.
