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 segments: “Viral.”

The first banner is for the “Viral” segment comes courtesy of one of the series producers Tim Nardelli, who has designed all of the previous posters we’ve shared on the site.

The official synopsis for “Viral.” is below:

“Dora Madison, Griffin Freeman, Cole Bernstein, and Amin El Gamal star in a segment written and directed by Michael Nardelli, titled ‘Viral.’ Madison portrays a college freshman and aspiring screenwriter new to the big city who’s looking for permanence in a world of ephemeral “tweets” and “snaps.” She soon regrets the lasting impression she’s made when, after sleeping with campus golden boy (Freeman), rumors abound across social media suggesting she’s contracted a horrific STD. As the news goes “viral,” her symptoms worsen. Gamal, recently on Fox’s Prison Break revival, plays the owner of Kafkaesque skid row clinic visited by Madison’s character.”

“Viral” is produced by Tim Nardelli, Mario Miscione, and Allison Vanore, and is shot by Sheldon Chau.
