Cases range from recovering the missing cell phone of a social media star and solving the mystery of a dead man’s still-active fantasy sports team.
The series stars Anu Valia and Nate Fernald as the investigative partners Kelly and Spitzy, with muscle being produced by Mehran Khaghani as Bruno. They interrogate subjects who’ve been posting negative comments on videos, and discover the hidden dangers of Internet fame.
