SYFY GREENLIGHTS NEW UNSCRIPTED SERIES "THE INTERNET RUINED MY LIFE"
-- Half-Hour Series Produced by Atomic Entertainment Group and Left/Right Productions to Premiere on Syfy in Early 2016 --
NEW YORK - November 10, 2015 - Syfy has commenced production on a new original unscripted series, The Internet Ruined My Life. Produced by Atomic Entertainment Group and Left/Right Productions, the six-part series will expose the unexpected perils of living in a social media obsessed world and will premiere on Syfy in early 2016.
Each half-hour episode of The Internet Ruined My Life tells the real life stories of people who had posts, tweets or status updates backfire. From an innocent tweet that caused two traveling friends to be detained and suspected of potential terrorism, to a hashtag that unleashed death threats and a sniper outside a young woman's window, to a profile picture that got transformed into a hateful meme shared by hundreds of thousands, the series tells each story through gripping first-person accounts.
"With technology making it possible to communicate to anyone, anytime, from anywhere, what was once the stuff of science fiction is now an everyday reality," said Heather Olander, Senior Vice President, Alternative Development and Production, Syfy. "The Internet Ruined My Life takes a look at the flip side of today's hyper-connected world, and reveals how easy it is to completely change your life in just one simple keystroke."
Executive producers for Atomic Entertainment Group are Jerry Kolber and Adam Davis, and for Left/Right Productions, Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman.
