Wild Wild Country is a Netflix documentary series about the controversial Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho), his one-time personal assistant Ma Anand Sheela, and their community of followers in the Rajneeshpuram community located in Wasco County, Oregon.

episodes:

Under the watchful eye of his secretary, Ma Anand Sheela, spiritual guru Bhagwan Shree Rajineesh renovates his ashram from India to Oregon in 1981.

When the world's most controversial guru builds a utopian city deep in the Oregon desert, conflict with the locals escalates into a national scandal.

Sheela emerges as a provocative spokeswoman. As Election Day approaches, the Rajneeshees recruit thousands of homeless people to fortify their ranks.

Local officials try to build a case against the Rajneeshees. When Sheela's thirst for power turns violent, the Bhagwan finally breaks his silence.

The bitter feud between Sheela and the Bhagwan divides the community -- and opens the door for the FBI. At the ranch, a task force amasses evidence.

The Bhagwan flees the ranch. Sheela and several followers are arrested in Germany. The Bhagwan's devotees -- and his enemies -- reflect on his legacy.
