Told in real time and based on various true stories thriller Cyberbully focuses on typical teenager Casey Jacobs whose whole world revolves around her cyber life – the constant communcation she keeps up with her friends in the digital world. Things start to spiral out of control though when she becomes the target for a hacker who begins a campaign against her.
This drama was actually made by Channel 4’s documentary department who felt that using drama to look at the troubling subject of cyber bullying would make it accessible to more people.
