[VIDEO] ‘Clickbait’ teaser, premiere date for Netflix limited series

Adrian Grenier’s life is at the mercy of Click bait in the first teaser for the Netflix limited series (premiering Wednesday, August 25).

the Entourage The vet plays Nick Brewer, “a loving father, husband and brother, who one day suddenly and mysteriously disappears,” the official synopsis read. “A video appears on the Internet of Nick, severely beaten, holding a card saying, ‘I abuse women. At 5 million views, I’m dying. ‘ Is it a threat or an admission? Or both?”

It’s Nick’s sister (played by The plot against America‘s Zoe Kazan) and his wife (Defend Jacob‘s Betty Gabriel) to save him – but in the process, “they discover a side of Nick they didn’t know existed.”
