by | Sep 18, 2014 | All, TV News

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is to star as the lead in a new drama from Channel 4 with the working title of Cyber Bully.

Williams will star in the drama which based on real life events as Casey Jacobs, a teenage girl battling with her anonymous cyber-stalker in a real-time thriller from the makers of Blackout. Casey is a teenager who experiences the worst the web has to offer – from peer-to-peer bullying to advanced computer hacking – and fights to overcome her ordeal.

The plot of Cyber Bully is inspired by dozens of real-life cases. What happens to Casey is extreme, and framed in a dramatic format, yet all the events depicted are possible and indeed have happened to victims individually. Channel 4 Head of Documentaries, Nick Mirsky said, “It is one of the most important purposes of Channel 4 to find new ways of engaging young audiences with the cyber world and the stories that play out on the internet. This film does exactly that in a way that is gripping, relevant and fiercely public service”

Cyber Bully is expected Early 2015 on Channel 4
