Lori Arnold, Queen of Meth

In the early 1990s, while Tom Arnold was tumultuously married to Roseanne Barr and appearing in her hit sitcom, his sister Lori Arnold was running a multimillion-dollar drug business and going to prison.

Tom, usually a supporting actor during his career, plays second fiddle once again in Queen of Meth, a three-part docu-series about Lori debuting today on Discovery+.

Together, Lori and Tom return to their hometown of Ottumwa, Iowa, where for six years, she ran a sprawling multistate meth empire. A major dealer, user, and supplier, she was producing 10 to 20 pounds of meth weekly in her lab and raking in at least $200,000…until her lavish lifestyle came crashing down once the feds closed in on her.

Discovery+ calls the three hour-long episodes “explosive”: “in an intimate and exclusive moment of reckoning, Lori reflects on how the highs of drugs, money and power had a grip on her” and grapples “with a broken world she helped create and the stream of relationships shattered from her time at the top.”

Discovery+ costs $4.99/month with commercials, or $6.99/month for an ad-free experience. Verizon customers with qualifying plans can get 12 months free.
