XOXO trailer

What do you do if you love raves but hate leaving the house? Well, if you’ve got a Netflix subscription, you put on XOXO. Directed by Christopher Louie, the EDM drama follows six strangers whose lives intersect as they make their way to a giant music festival. Our main hero is Ethan (The Good Wife‘s Graham Phillips), an up-and-coming DJ who books a last minute slot at XOXO after his latest tracks go viral.

There’s also Krystal (Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland), who seems to in the mood for love, and Neil (Whitney‘s Chris D’Elia), who seems really cranky about having to attend XOXO, plus Hayley Kiyoko (Jem), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Ione Skye (Say Anything…), Colin Woodell (The Originals), and Brett DelBuono (Let Me In).

Combining the creepy obsessive relationship of Black Swan, the Facebook focus of The Social Network, and the social media savvy of Catfish, XOXO follows the story of a young man who strikes up a relationship with a young woman he meets online, only to find the relationship take a disturbing turst when she begins stalking him.
