From first-time director and veteran journalist Nick Bilton, FAKE FAMOUS explores the industry of social media influencers through an innovative social experiment.

Streaming now on BINGE, the film’s journey into this world is driven by the casting of three people in Los Angeles who all have relatively small social followings and the attempt to grow them into famous influencers.

By purchasing fake followers and an army of bots to “engage” with their social media, the newly made “influencers” discover both the wonders and costs of this unlikely, immersive lifestyle.

The young trio include aspiring actress Dominique, fashion designer Chris and real estate assistant Wylie.

Each of their stories illuminates the ephemeral world of online influence and the realities of a lifestyle based largely on fantasy.

Peeling back the layers to reveal what’s really happening behind the scenes of influencer fame, FAKE FAMOUS illuminates our obsession with the numbers of likes, followers and favourites we get, and how most of our online world is much more fabricated than we realise.

HBO Documentary Films’ in association with Consolidated Documentaries presents FAKE FAMOUS directed, written, and produced by Nick Bilton; produced by Annabelle Dunne and Mary Recine; executive produced by Graydon Carter; For HBO: executive producers Nancy Abraham, Lisa Heller; senior producer Sara Rodriguez.

Fake Famous is streaming now on BINGE.
