Netflix's 'Clickbait' teaser trailer displays uncontrolled impulse of social media
Get ready to obsess over Netflix's dark, new limited series, Clickbait! The first look teaser and photos of the limited eight-episode series are out, showing Adrian Grenier in the role of a loving friend, brother, husband, and father. However, the story brings the unexpected when Adrian's character, Nick Brewer, mysteriously disappears. That's when they "uncover a side of Nick they didn't know existed."
First impression: The thriller mystery promises excitement till end
Who is Nick Brewer? That's the question around which Clickbait will rotate. But from the looks of it, this character seems as the devil who wears Prada. Is there something about Nick that is not known to his beloveds? It seems so. Because, we see a badly beaten lead holding a card that reads, "I abuse women. At 5 million views I die."
Is it Nick's 'confession' or is it a threat?
Is this Nick's "confession" or has he been issued a threat by the one who has held him captive? Might be both! And that's when the teaser gains pace. Like any other thriller, Clickbait will also take a U-turn from a happy life. But, in this one, we will see "fractures" between real and virtual life, promising a great binge-watching experience.
The series explores the dangerous side of social media
Will Nick's family be able to save him, amid growing viewer numbers? Given the synopsis, Clickbait is expected to be a compelling high-stake thriller drama on the platform. Moreover, the story will throw light on the uncontrolled impulses of the social media age. This riveting series will hit the streaming platform next month, as was revealed in the almost one minute long teaser.
Know who is playing what in the series
Apart from Adrian as the lead, we have Zoe Kazan as Nick's sister Pia Brewer, desperately looking for answers to her missing brother. Also, Betty Gabriel plays Nick's wife Sophie Brewer, and Phoenix Raei appears as Roshan Amir, a detective at Oakland Police Department.
