This looks wild.
Netflix will be releasing a new reality show called, The Push, on 2/27 and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
The show involves Derren Brown, a psychological illusionist, who will essentially trick people into doing fucked up things – such as murder.
According to Esquire, Brown takes that skill to a pretty extreme level, one where he puts one unwitting participant in a situation where they might have to commit murder. A group of actors works to see if they can convince this person to actually participate in killing another human. It’s not real, but holy shit is it twisted.
Netflix said, “Brown exposes the psychological secrets of obedience and social compliance. He expertly lifts the lid on the terrifying truth that, when confronted with authority, our natural instinct is to unflinchingly obey without question—to such an extent that even the most moral people can be made to commit the most horrendous acts, simply because they are told to do so.”
