Salky says while real people with real kids were left out of the movie, William "Rick" Singer, the person allegedly in charge of the scam, was included.

“The film is not about any of the real families. We looked at all the families involved and we kind of said to ourselves, ‘What kind of people were part of this?' "

"There were people connected to Rick, people who want the kids to go to those kinds of schools, people who had a certain socioeconomic level,’ and we really actually tried to avoid any similarities to anyone specific with regards to the families. But Rick Singer is a real character in our film.”
