New Series Dark/Web Deals With the Dangers of the Digital Age
However you feel about living in the digital age, you have to admit the fact that the government can now track your every move is unsettling. The new series “Dark/Web” will explore the darker side of today’s connected world.
Here are more details plus a few exclusive images from the “Eat. Prey. Love.” episode!
From the Press Release:
“Dark/Web,” a new eight-part anthology series, combines a serialized narrative with stand-alone sci-fi/thriller segments.
“Dark/Web” is the brainchild of brothers Michael and Tim Nardelli and Mario Miscione, creators of last year’s cult hit Circle; and each episode deals with the dangers of a totally connected world.
“Dark/Web’s” cast includes Gabriel Luna (“Agents of Shield’s” new Ghost Rider) and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” alums Nicholas Brendan and Clare Kramer, along with Hannah Marks (“Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency”), Zelda Williams, and Sully alums Molly Hagan and Graham Sibley. Brian Elerding (“Mad Men”), Brandon Scott, Siobhan Fallon Hogan (“Wayward Pines”), Michael Nardelli, and Shannon Collins (Inherent Vice) also appear in the show.
About the Show:
Each episode of “Dark/Web” explores themes related to the Internet and the dangers present in the murky, unexplained layers of the web. Paranoia, isolation, vanity, loss of identity, the viral nature of ideas, and social media pressures are just a few of the subjects the show tackles. Socially, the Internet is as unifying and divisive as it’s ever been; only now, when the entire world is connected, it’s never been harder to unplug. In order to showcase diverse and varied points of view, each episode comes from different writers, directors, and actors.
