The Circle Trailer Previews the New Netflix Competition Series

-

Netflix has revealed The Circle trailer, which gives you a first look at the streaming service’s adaptation of the UK unscripted sensation. The Circle is a three-week event that kicks off on New Year’s Day and will continue with new episodes on January 8th and January 15th.

In The Circle you never know who you’re playing against as contestants bond, flirt, and plot, all in an effort to earn clout exclusively through a unique social media platform. Everyone’s competing to gain influence and avoid getting voted out. But who’s for real and who’s a catfish? With $100k on the line, what would you do — and who would you be — to win?

The format was created by All3Media’s Studio Lambert and recently co-produced by Studio Lambert and Motion Content Group for the UK’s Channel 4. Since launching on Channel 4, the UK version has fascinated audiences and sparked conversations around the country.

Contestants live in separate apartments in a single building and do not meet face-to-face during the competition. They communicate through a special voice-activated social media platform and rate each other frequently. Unpopular players are “blocked” and ultimately the most popular player wins a cash prize. Since they only know each other through their online dialogue and profiles, players can choose whether to present a true or fictional version of themselves. It’s a game exploring questions of honesty and trust when people can’t see each other in the flesh.
