The series, which won the Episodic Audience Award at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, stars Rami Malek (“The Pacific”) as a anarchist computer programmer taken in by a mysterious hacker group led by Christian Slater (“The Adderall Diaries”). Portia Doubleday (“Her”), Carly Chaikin (“Suburgatory”) and Martin Wallström (“Easy Money III”) also star.
Indiewire TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller reviewed the first episode when it screened at SXSW, calling the show “a testament to the blend of cinematic execution that’s invaded episodic television in recent years.”
