Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley turns full-fledged psycho by posting everything that the object of his affection does in his latest dark series, YOU, a Netflix Original Series.
Written by Berlanti and Gamble based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel, You is described as a 21st century love story that asks, “What would you do for love?” When a brilliant bookstore manager (Badgley) crosses paths with an aspiring writer (not yet cast), his answer becomes clear: anything. He exploits today’s technology to win the heart of Beck (Elizabeth Lail – The Blacklist) amid the growing suspicions of her best friend Peach (Shay Mitchell – Pretty Little Liars). Joe transforms himself from stalker to boyfriend while doing whatever it takes to eliminate all obstacles standing in his way — even if it means murder.
“There you were,” Badgley’s character says in the clip. “Every account set to public. You want to be seen, heard, known. Of course, I obliged.”
The trailer wastes no time in diving straight into Joe’s obsessive thoughts as he exploits technology to win the heart of Beck, transforming himself from stalker to boyfriend all the while.
Set in today’s 24/7 hyper-connected world, YOU explores how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation online and in real life.
Only on Netflix.
