Netflix has released a short teaser for an upcoming 8-episode limited series “Clickbait”. The mystery thriller arrives on August 25th and follows Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier), a loving father, husband, and brother, who one day suddenly and mysteriously disappears. But when 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” then his sister (Zoe Kazan) and wife (Betty Gabriel) rush to find and save him. But in doing so, they uncover a side of Nick they didn’t know existed.
The series is described 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, revealing the ever-widening fractures we find between our virtual and real-life personas.”
