The now-infamous Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia — which served as the backdrop of Rudy Giuliani’s press conference in November pushing then-President Trump’s bogus voter fraud claims — will return to the spotlight with a new documentary in the works.

News outlets projected that Joe Biden would win the presidency during Giuliani’s last-minute press conference outside the garage door of the small business, which sits between a crematorium and a sex shop. Thanks to a miscommunication, Trump himself had initially assumed the press conference would be held at the ritzy Four Seasons Hotel, according to the New York Times. Not so.

The director of the film, Christopher Stoudt, described his project in a statement as “apolitical” with a “feel-good tone.” The documentary —“Four Seasons Total Documentary” — will supposedly give a firsthand account of the small business’ rise to fame when it agreed to host a political press conference on the week of the presidential election.

The landscaping company found ways to cash in on the unprecedented amount of media attention it got in the aftermath of Giuliani’s press conference by selling T-shirts and other merchandise. It captured the public imagination enough that it was featured in a Super Bowl ad on Sunday night for freelance services marketplace Fiverr.

Four Seasons Total Landscaping owner Marie Siravo and director of sales Sean Middleton are featured in the documentary as they try to outline the events leading up to the brow-raising fiasco for the Trump campaign, according to Deadline and The Wrap.

In a statement, Stoudt said he’s honored to document an unforgettable story that the public has been waiting “months” to hear about.

“After such a hard year, everyone needed a moment to laugh,” Stoudt said. “Little did we know it would come from a press conference that took place across the street from a crematorium (down the road from a sex shop). This film is a chance to wipe the slate clean, not just for Four Seasons Total Landscaping, but for the entire country.”

The documentary expects to complete production this month and is searching for a distributor.
