Netflix has announced a new thriller series called “Clickbait” that will be filming in Australia later this year. The 8-part series is co-created by showrunner and producer Tony Ayres (“The Slap”, “Nowhere Boys”) and Australian novelist and screenwriter Christian White. The series is told from eight different points of view and examines the murder of a self-confessed victimizer and the role social media played in the crime. David Heyman (“Harry Potter”, “Gravity”) will produce and it will be directed by Brad Anderson (“The Sinner”).
“Clickbait” is described as a “character-based thriller” exploring “the ways in which our most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fuelled in the age of social media”
