Speaking about making the show, the director Mark Lewis explained: "What is so mind-blowing for me about this documentary series is that it plays out like a real thriller. [There are] twists and turns that no-one will see coming, a cast of internet heroes whose resourcefulness will have you cheering from the sidelines, and a murderer whose true identity will have you gasping when he is finally unmasked."
