Netflix is making a thriller TV series about social media

How modern.

Love it or hate it, you can barely escape it - social media is a force that dominates day-to-day life and probably won't die down any time soon.

There are positives and there are negatives, the latter of which probably being the best material to construct a brand new thriller about, were you in the mood.

It turns out that the people over at Netflix are and thus have given the green light to Clickbait, an eight-episode series that is already shooting in Australia.

The show will star the likes of Adrien Grenier (aka Vinny Chase from Entourage), Betty Gabriel (as seen in the likes of Get Out, Unfriended: Dark Web and Upgrade) and Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick) among others.

Clickbait will "explore the ways in which people's most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fuelled in the age of social media" while revealing "the ever-widening fractures between virtual and real-life personas," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The plot will see a woman by the name of Pia Brewer (Kazan) search for answers as she looks to track down her missing brother in a case that becomes a viral sensation.

No word on a premiere date yet but you can expect some creative hashtags, probably.
