WEB OF MAKE BELIEVE: DEATH, LIES AND THE INTERNET tells five unique tales of people caught in the dark and twisted web of modern misinformation and digital deception. When the haunting and up-to-the-moment relevant series first appeared on Netflix it was called “startling” and “harrowing”.
Through first hand interviews, Web of Make Believe explores the consequences of “SWATing”, takes a chilling trip down the rabbit hole of white supremacy, joins a federal hunt for the suspect of a brazen IRS heist and investigates a murder set against the backdrop of Russian election interference. Rich with distinctive characters and surprising plot lines, reality is warped when the ordinary American household collides with a chaotic web of misinformation. As one character in the series puts it in the first episode “when technology is used by idiots, it creates chaos and it creates disaster.”
