Netflix has announced the cast for an upcoming thriller series “Clickbait”. The 8-episode limited series is described as a character-based thriller and the show will explore the ways in which our most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fuelled in the age of social media – revealing the ever-widening fractures we find between our virtual and real-life personas. “Clickbait” is co-created by Tony Ayres (“The Slap”) and Christian White with Brad Anderson (“The Sinner”) as Lead Director and Emma Freeman (“Glitch”) as second block director.
The cast includes Zoe Kazan (“The Big Sick”, “Ruby Sparks”), Betty Gabriel (“Get Out”, “Counterpart”), Adrian Grenier (“Entourage”, “Affairs of State”) and Phoenix Raei (“Stateless”, “The Heights”). “Clickbait” is currently filming in Melbourne, Australia.
