The meta series centers around Jeff (The Vampire Diaries‘ Matt Davis), a journalist blogger who, after his brother goes missing, starts an investigation along with a young production assistant (Melrose Place’s Jessica Lucas) on a popular TV show called Cult. Their theory? That the show’s rabid fans may be re-creating the crimes from the program. Alona Tal (Supernatural) and Robert Knepper (Prison Break) co-star as actors within the fictional series.

Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and writer Rockne O’Bannon (V, Farscape) are behind the project.
