The limited thriller series “Clickbait” is coming to Netflix globally on August 25.. The official press release has it billed as “a compelling, high stakes thriller that explores the ways in which our most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fueled in the age of social media.”
That sounds pretty good, it compares nicely with modern life, right?
One of the best shows series on Netflix has been BACK MIRROR.
Hopefully this series has the same feel and works on that same high level..
Netflix details, “An eight-episode limited series told from revolving points of view, Clickbait is a compelling, high stakes thriller that explores the ways in which our most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fueled in the age of social media, revealing the ever-widening fractures we find between our virtual and real-life personas.”
This is the synopsis:
“Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier) is a loving father, husband, and brother, who one day suddenly and mysteriously disappears. A video appears on the internet of the badly beaten Nick holding a card that says “I abuse women. At 5 million views, I die”. Is this a threat or confession? Or both? As his sister (Zoe Kazan) and wife (Betty Gabriel) rush to find and save him, they uncover a side of Nick they didn’t know existed.”
Here is the very interesting trailer:
