Ella Purnell has joined the cast for Cyber Bully, a Channel 4 docu-drama about a teenage girl facing an anonymous online stalker and dealing with peer-to-peer bullying and advanced computer hacking, and eventually fighting back.

Cyber Bully, due to be broadcast in early 2015, takes place in a single location and also stars Maisie Williams and Jake Davies.

It will be presented in the form of a real-time thriller, directed by Ben Chanan, who was also responsible for Channel 4 drama-doc Blackout, which imagined the catastrophic aftermath of the collapse of the UK’s electricity supply.

Channel 4’s head of documentaries, Nick Mirsky, said: “It is one of the most important purposes of Channel 4 to find new ways of engaging young audiences with the cyber world and the stories that play out on the internet. This film does exactly that in a way that is gripping, relevant and fiercely public service.”
