“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.
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.
“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.
Unfortunately there’s no news yet on who will be distributing the show but judging by its tone and original content I think it would slot in well on Netflix where hows such as “Black Mirror” Have been a big hit.
“Dark/Web” is set to premiere later in 2017. Take a look at the Facebook page HERE.
