Michael Abels (Get Out, Us, Bad Education, See You Yesterday, All Day and a Night) has recently scored the new HBO documentary Fake Famous. The film is directed by Nick Bilton and explores the meaning of fame and influence in the digital age through an innovative social experiment. The movie follows three LA-based people with relatively small followings and the attempts made to turn them into famous influencers by purchasing fake followers and bots to “engage” with their social media accounts. Bilton (The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley) is also producing the Consolidated Documentaries production with Annabelle Dunne & Mary Recine (Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold). Graydon Carter serves as an executive producer. Fake Famous will premiere on February 2, 2021 on HBO and will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
