Adrian Grenier returned to TV for Netflix’s ‘Clickbait’

Netflix released its new thriller series, Clickbait, on Aug. 25, 2021. Grenier stars as Nick Brewer, a man who disappears suddenly after an evening with his family. The next day, his sister, Pia (Zoe Kazan), discovers a video online in which a bloodied and battered Nick holds a sign that reads, “I abuse women. At 5 million views, I die.”

The series follows Pia’s mission to find her brother alongside Nick’s wife, Sophie (Betty Gabriel), and their sons, Ethan (Cameron Engels) and Kai (Jaylin Fletcher). Along the way, they uncover secrets about Nick and each other. Was he really kidnapped, or did he confess to a crime?

For Grenier, the decision to come back to television after a decade away came down to Clickbait’s enticing premise. He told Entertainment Weekly that he’s “project-focused” and felt drawn to the series.

“I’m project-focused, not necessarily quantity but quality. I’m always looking for the projects that are going to have a profound impact on people,” he explained. “[Clickbait is] a very curious series. At first blush, just on the surface, it’s a thriller; it’s a whodunnit. But really, the depth of it is exploring issues of identity, especially in the technology world. It’s really very interesting exploring what it’s like to be alive at a time of the internet, avatars, catfishing, all those things.”

All eight episodes of Clickbait are now streaming on Netflix.
