Eye Candy is an American thriller television series developed by Christian Taylor and based on the novel of the same name by R.L. Stine which follows Lindy Sampson, a tech genius who goes on the hunt for a serial killer in New York while searching for her lost sister Sara.
The hour-long, 10-episode drama centres on tech genius Lindy, played by Victoria Justice, a 21-year-old hacker with a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can't.
Persuaded by her roommate to try online dating, Lindy begins to suspect that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker. When the local cyber-crimes unit uncovers a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to this mysterious stalker.
Teaming up with the cyber unit and some hacker friends, Lindy leads the charge to solve these murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.
Eye Candy was developed by Christian Taylor based on the Novel "Eye Candy" by R.L. Stine. Christian Taylor serves as executive producer. The show is executive produced by Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity franchise, Insidious, Sinister, The Purge) in association with Blumhouse Productions, Inc.
Additional executive producers include Yvonne Bernard and Beth Elise Hawk. Emmy Grinwis and Tony Hernandez are co-executive producers.
Victoria Justice as Lindy
Lindy's been powerfully shaped by two life events. The first was the horrific abduction of her younger sister, Sara. In the aftermath of that trauma, Lindy dropped out of college, moved to New York, and became a hacker so she could dedicate herself to finding Sara, while occasionally bending the law to help others with their own unsolved missing persons cases.
Casey Deidrick as Tommy
Tommy, the dry-witted New York native descends from a long line of cops and now works in the NYPD Cyber Unit. He's smart, tough, no-nonsense, and started as a beat cop before working his way up to Cyber detective. Tommy is skeptical of Lindy's tactics and motivations, but he decides to work with her when his partner, Ben, starts helping Lindy track the stalker.
Harvey Guillen as George
George is Lindy's friend, confidante, and coworker at her day job in the IT department of a financial company. A fellow hacker, George has always helped Lindy out when she needed assistance whether it's legal or slightly left of the law.
Kiersey Clemons as Sophia
Sophia is Lindy's hip, gorgeous and vibrant best friend and roommate who owns the popular downtown nightclub IRL. Two years ago, Sophia rescued Lindy from perpetual couch surfing when she first moved to New York by inviting her to crash in her apartment—and Lindy never left.
John Garet Stoker as Connor
Connor is Sophia's other best friend – a young blogger for a gossip site. He has a friendly rivalry with Lindy, and supports Sophia's attempts to get Lindy to join a dating app, helping Lindy navigate potential matches. Always having to share Sophia's attentions with Lindy, Connor has his own selfish reasons for wanting Lindy to have a boyfriend.
