Netflix has released a trailer, poster and images for Clickbait, the upcoming thriller series which stars Adrian Grenier as a husband and father who mysteriously disappears until a video of him badly beaten appears on the internet, making claims he abuses women and threatening his death at 5 million views; check them out here…
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. 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.
Clickbait also stars Zoe Kazan, Betty Gabriel, Jessica Collins, Camaron Engels, Jaylin Fletcher, Motell Gyn Foster, Daniel Henshall, Abraham Lim, Ian Medows, and Phoenix Raei.
Clickbait arrives on Netflix on August 25th.
