Big announcement coming shortly my friends… Stay tuned
Based on the novel by RL Stein, it revolves around tech genius Lindy (Justice), a 21-year-old hacker with a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can’t. Persuaded by her roommate to try online dating, Lindy begins to suspect that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker.
When the local cyber-crimes unit uncovers a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to her mysterious stalker. Teaming up with the cyber unit and some hacker friends, Lindy leads the charge to solve these murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.
Eye Candy was developed by Christian Taylor, who executive produced the series with Yvonne Bernard, Beth Elise Hawk, and Jason Blum in association with Blumhouse Productions. Emmy Grinwis and Tony Hernandez are co-executive producers.
