Adrian Grenier’s life is at the mercy of Clickbait in the first teaser for the Netflix limited series (premiering Wednesday, Aug. 25).
The Entourage vet stars as Nick Brewer, “a loving father, husband and brother, who one day suddenly and mysteriously disappears,” reads the official synopsis. “A video appears on the internet of the badly beaten Nick holding a card that says, ‘I abuse women. At 5 million views, I die.’ Is this a threat or confession? Or both?”
It’s up to Nick’s sister (played by The Plot Against America‘s Zoe Kazan) and wife (Defending Jacob‘s Betty Gabriel) to save him — but in the process, “they uncover a side of Nick they didn’t know existed.”
Press PLAY on the video above to watch the preview.
