The twisted world of Dark/Web is slowly approaching. If you’ve ever needed a reason to fear the world the internet, this upcoming series is sure to give you one. With its healthy combination of both serialized and anthological storytelling, Dark/Web seems poised to scratch an itch that a lot of consumers are having.
If you’re unfamiliar with the digital series, here’s the official synopsis:
"When Ethan (Elerding), Sam (McKissack) and James (Nardelli) find themselves the target of cryptic emails from someone posing as their childhood friend Molly (Gonzales), they assume she’s been the victim of an all-too-common hack. After they reach out to alert her, however, they discover that Molly’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 Molly’s past; clues that may lead them to their missing friend."
In addition to the killer premise, each episode consists of a standalone anthology segment woven into its narrative. Today, we have some news involving one of those segements: “Hacked.”
"Hacked" is especially notable because it was written by LRM reader Christopher Webster. If you'll recall, last year, we held a contest where dozens of readers submitted their scripts for a short anthology, and the script to come out on top was none other than "Hacked." This segment was also directed by our very own Eric Salberg, who serves as one of the co-hosts of Los Fanboys.
Thanks to the producers of Dark/Web, we now have the official banner for “Hacked.” The banner was created by Tim Nardelli, and it gives us just a taste of what we can expect.
This second segment of Dark/Web will make you rethink pursuing internet fame. Especially in today's technologically-advanced world, being in the limelight is a doubt-edged sword. Check out the official synopsis below:
“When a once in a lifetime encounter brings seventeen year-old, Misty, instant online fame she thinks her dreams have finally come true. However, a series of unsettling pranks begins to lead her to believe she's been hacked. Misty will soon discover that online notoriety can also become a nightmare.”
"Hacked stars Cassi Thomson, Lachlan Buchanan, and Isis King.
The segment is written by Christopher Webster and directed by Eric Salberg, shot by Hanuman Brown-Eagle, and produced by Michael Nardelli, Tim Nardelli, and Mario Miscione.
