The show follows Nev Schulman and Max Joseph as they help deceived younguns after they fell into online relationships with people they´ve never met and don´t even know if they are for real.
It started as the spinoff of documentary Catfish, in which the victim was Schulman himself.
Season three wrapped up its ten episodes run this month and will now move on to start production on season four, where hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph will take viewers on a wild emotional rollercoaster ride beyond the usual tales of “love,” featuring the most memorable stories in the show’s history.
Yaniv “Nev” Schulman started a film and photography production company with his older brother, Ariel, at the age of 19. One of the projects that came out of this successful partnership was the hit documentary feature, “Catfish.” Nev has lived and worked in New York City his entire life. After five years of studying dance and performing internationally as a child, he began taking photography seriously in high school. In 2004, Nev began photographing the New York ballet community and has worked with many companies and choreographers, and continues to be a passionate advocate of the art form.
Max Joseph is a young filmmaker from New York City who at the age of 18, licensed his first short film to HBO Family, where it aired over the next four years. Since then, Max’s films have screened at festivals all over the country, including Sundance, Telluride, and SXSW, and he’s directed and edited award-winning commercials for well-known brands including Nike, Pepsi, Starbucks, TOMS and Toyota Prius. Additionally, Max formerly served as creative director of video at GOOD Magazine, where he wrote and directed over 60 short films, some of which screened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM,) and the Gagosian Gallery in New York.
