Dark/Web is about the evolution of the internet which has given way to a world in crisis; one where everyone’s connected and no one is safe. Molly Solis (Noemi Gonzalez), a cyber securities analyst, understood these dangers better than anyone and was determined to find a way to keep people protected… until she vanished without a trace. Now, friends and foes from her past are in a race against time to decipher cryptic messages she’s left behind; tales that paint a grim picture of technology run amok. As the mystery deepens, they will discover the stories, and Molly herself may be concealing information that could change the world, or destroy it.
DARK/WEB is comprised of eight anthology segments, each dealing with different dangers of the tech age, connected by a serialized narrative uncovering the mystery behind Molly’s disappearance. In addition to Michael, the series stars Zelda Williams, Clare Kramer, Julie Benz, Nicholas Brendan and more. Produced by FELT FILMS, the series held a panel and screening at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con and the 2019 SCAD aTVfest and was released on July 19, 2019, on Amazon Prime in over 150 territories internationally.
