Cyberbully is a gripping real-time thriller set entirely in one room. Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) gives an outstanding, critically acclaimed performance as Casey Jacobs, a troubled teenager battling against a malicious and terrifying cyber stalker. When Casey discover her laptop has been hacked she assumes one of her school friends is to blame. In fact, the teenager has fallen prey to a sophisticated hacker who now has access to her anonymous posts and private selfies. Most disturbing of all, the perpetrator has taken control of Casey’s webcam, and is watching her every move. But why has the cyberbully chosen her? And is Casey Jacobs as innocent as she seems?

Cyberbully was the winner of the prestigious Prix Italia for Best Drama, and won the Signis Prize at the Monte Carlo TV festival. It has also won Mind Media Award and been nominated for an RTS award, two Broadcast awards and a BAFTA,
