Jed (Nick Thune) has somehow lasted deep into his thirties without venturing into the world of social media. A self-established introvert and talented photo editor, Jed’s absence from the digital networking landscape has left him socially marooned. That is, until he discovers that he can use his wizard-like Photoshop mastery to present his life in any way imaginable. When digital marketing manager Tasha (Halston Sage) sees an opportunity to cultivate a celebrity out of a nobody, she helps fabricate Jed’s false life via multiple online platforms. Before long, Jed emerges from his cocoon as a high-profile social butterfly. However, after Jed unexpectedly crosses paths with his high-school crush Franky (Kaily Smith Westbrook), dormant affections reawaken and Jed must find a way to reconcile his unvarnished self with the slick facade of his online persona.

Q&A with expected guests Sherwin Shilati, Shelley Stevens, Nicholas Rutherford, and Kaily Smith Westbrook.
