What to watch: The Influencers
The Influencers is a new comedy series from Mike Heslin.
The five-episode series turns its gaze on six social media stars who are competing for a major brand deal. It’s a competition that forces them to live together with the cameras rolling.
Predictably, the cracks soon start to appear as the filtered versions that the influencers present to the online world don’t match up to their reality.
“Few issues today are as polarising as social media…” said Mike Heslin. “It is both glorified as the ultimate democratiser and demonised as the beginning of the end of human civilisation. But regardless of which camp you fall into – this show is for you.”
The series stars Mike Heslin, Noam Ash, Luciana Faulhaber, Nicolas Wilson, Samantha Gracie, Leanne Noelle Smith, Aisha Evelyna, Joey Belfiore, and Joshua Pemberton.
