Do you really know the people closest to you? That’s the question at the heart of Clickbait, Netflix’s new thriller.
It follows Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier), 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.
The eight-episode series is told from revolving points of view, exploring the ways in which impulses are fuelled in the age of social media, revealing the ever-widening fractures between our virtual and real-life personas. See it action on 25th August. Here’s the trailer:
Clickbait is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £9.99 monthly subscription.

Zoe Kazan will star in Netflix’s new thriller Clickbait.
From NBCUniversal International Studios, Tony Ayres Productions, Matchbox Pictures and Heyday Television, the eight-episode thriller explores the ways in which our most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fueled in the age of social media and reveals the ever-widening fractures we find between our virtual and real-life personas.

Now, they’ve found the talent to bring the story to life in front of the camera, with Kazan (The Big Sick, Ruby Sparks) leading the way as Pia Brewer, a young woman desperate for answers in the search for her missing brother in a case that has become a media sensation. She is joined by: Better Gabriel (Get Out, Counterpart) as Sophie Brewer, an Oakland woman struggling to keep her family together as they become the subject of the biggest media story in the nation; Adrian Grenier (Entourage) as Nick Brewer, who has a seemingly perfect life – loving wife, two sons, beautiful home – but finds it all derailed when he becomes a part of this bizarre crime; and Phoenix Raei (Stateless) as Roshan Amir, a detective with the Oakland Police Department who finds himself at the center of a media storm as he investigates the case.
