“Dark Net”
Season Premiere Thursday, April 6 at 10 PM ET/PT on SHOWTIME
 
          Following its eye-opening debut last year, the second season of “DARK NET” takes viewers on sharper, even more unnerving turns as it depicts the perilous consequences that result when the virtual world invades every aspect of our lives – our homes and communities, our money and jobs, even our bodies, minds and identities. The series exposes how we unwittingly surrender access to the most personal aspects of our lives because of our dependence on technology and willingness to do anything for convenience.

 

          Even our most intimate interactions and transactions are networked via data we willingly provide, transforming each of us into data points for companies, governments, workplaces, merchandisers and others. “DARK NET” episodes showcase stories, characters and data sourced by Vocativ’s proprietary deep web technology. Over the course of eight half-hour episodes, season two of “DARK NET” documents the vast extent to which our collected information and data is building an interconnected global net that has perhaps rendered us the last generation of privacy.
