In a very special episode of Los Fanboys, Jammer sits down with Mario Miscione, Michael Nardelli, and Tim Nardelli, the creators of the sci-fi film Circle, as well as the upcoming LRM-exclusive digital series Dark/Web. For those unfamiliar, the show is a serial/anthology hybrid that explores the dangers of technology in today’s modern world.
The synopsis for Dark/Web is as follows:
Dark/Web follows a group of young adults navigating a near future where everythingâ€™s onlineand everyoneâ€™s connected, whether they like it or not. When Ethan, Sam, and James find themselves the target of cryptic emails from someone posing as their childhood friend Molly, they assume sheâ€™s been the victim of an all-too-common hack. After they reach out to alert her, however, they discover that Mollyâ€™s been missing for months and no one has any idea what happened to her. As the emails keep coming, each containing a tale written by Molly, her friends realize that this may be more than just a sick joke. Someone has hidden information in the stories, details pulled from real life that point them to people and places from Mollyâ€™s past; clues that may lead them to their missing friend.
But Dark/Web isn’t your typical serialized show, as stated at the top.
Its unique structure combines the classic, standalone stories traditionally found in an anthology with an overarching, season-long mystery. Each episode consists of two parts:
- A portion of a serialized tale that continues week after week.
- A stand-alone horror/sci-fi short, presented in the form of stories that Molly left behind; each written and directed by a different filmmaker.
While the podcast begins as a traditional interview, the discussion quickly evolves (devolves?) into real stoner-talk, where we talk about technology, the world, humanity’s place in it, and everything in between.
Dark/Web hits LRM Online in 2017!
