Imagine if everyone on Earth were connected through the continual recording and sharing of every experience. That is the basis for the new Amazon Prime Video series ‘The Feed’. This series was created by Channing Powell (‘The Walking Dead’), based on the novel by Nick Clark Windo.
In the near future, a high-tech implant connects our minds to “The Feed.” Every interaction, emotion, and memory can be shared instantly. Tom (Guy Burnet) and Kate (Nina Toussaint-White) are a young couple trying to resist their addiction to tech. Tom’s father, Lawrence (David Thewlis) invented “The Feed,” and his mother Meredith (Michelle Fairley) is the CEO overseeing its daily operation. When strange and violent things begin to happen to its users, Tom must do all he can to protect his wife, Kate (Nina Toussaint-White) and baby daughter from his father’s twisted creation. The Feed tells a very human story about survival, family, and the lengths that you would go to protect the ones you love.
‘The Feed’ definitely brings to mind ‘Black Mirror‘ as a whole, and the episode “The Entire History of You” in particular. In addition to the conflict over this all-encompassing technology, this series looks to deliver a healthy dose of family conflict. The cast also includes Chris Reilly, Clare-Hope Ashitey, Jeremy Neumark Jones, Osy Ikhile, Shaquille Ali-Yebuah, and Jing Lusi.
