Lifetime Orders Whoopi Goldberg’s Caught in His Web


Lifetime has greenlit the new original movie Caught in His Web, from Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg.

Executive produced by Goldberg, Caught in His Web stars Garcelle Beauvais (Spider-Man: Homecoming, NYPD Blue, The Real) as a local detective who is determined to help a group of teenage girls who are terrorized by a cyberbully. It will premiere on Lifetime in 2022.

Inspired by actual events, Caught in His Web tells the story of Emma (Alison Thorton), Olivia (Malia Baker) and Gabby (Emma Tremblay), who are each unknowingly tormented by a mysterious cyberbully named “Blake.” He hacks into their cell phones and computers and coerces them into sending nude photos, continually harassing them and tracking their every move. When the girls discover they are not alone in being tormented, they join forces and enlist the help of Detective Holland (Beauvais) in their effort to identify their harasser and end their nightmare.

Caught in His Web is produced for Lifetime by Cyber Productions in association with Johnson Production Group. Hannah Cheesman (Succor, The Boathouse) directs from a script written by Danielle Iman (Riverdale, Pretty Little Liars).
