It has Shay Mitchell, aka: Emily Fields. And Penn Bagdley, better known to Gossip Girl fans as Dan Humphrey.

The show, which was added to the streaming service on Stephen's Day, tells the story of Joe, a "brilliant bookstore manager", who crosses paths with an aspiring writer named Beck one day - and he's instantly smitten.

Things take a dark turn, as Joe's feelings towards Beck quickly move from a seemingly innocent crush to a nerve-shredding and nail-biting obsession.

He goes to drastic lengths to get the most intimate details about her, ready to take out any obstacle in his way - even a person, if need be.
