This May, Netflix will reveal How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) with a new series based on the true story of the world’s unlikeliest drug dealer.
Written by Philipp Käßbohrer, Sebastian Colley and Stefan Titze, it follows a student, Moritz Zimmermann, determined to win back the love of his life. So he and his best friend do the only thing they can think of: launch Europe’s largest online drug business from a teenage bedroom.
If you’re selling huge quantities of drugs on the internet, the first trailer for the show tells us, there’s one thing you should never do. Tell complete strangers…. Unless Netflix calls and wants to make a series about your life.
The six-part series is “a great trip for anyone who isn’t brave enough to risk actually taking drugs”, its creators told Variety in a recent interview. “The style of the show reflects the audiovisual diversity you’re confronted with today when using the Internet and social media. Trust me, there are places in the worldwide web where people have been waiting a long time for Jonathan Frakes to explain Darknet to them.”
“The whole show is about entertaining the kids, while frightening the parents. You know, we’re the first generation to have done things on the Internet as teenagers that our parents had no idea about,” they add. “Nowadays, parents are more afraid that their kids will find porn or violence on the Internet. We’re showing them that in reality everything is much worse and more dangerous than that. Nowadays, young people can do things on the Internet that destroy their whole lives: like becoming a drug lord. Or even worse, a YouTube star.”
The series, originally titled Don’t Try This at Home, launches on Netflix with its SEO-friendly title on 31st May. Here’s the video:
