Based on the critically-acclaimed and award-winning feature film.
The post 9/11 world has forever changed the notion of privacy. There are now approximately 40 million surveillance cameras in the United States generating more than 4 billion hours of footage every week. And the numbers are growing. The average American is now captured over 200 times a day, in department stores, gas stations, changing rooms, even public bathrooms. No one is spared from the relentless, unblinking eye of the cameras that are hidden in every nook and cranny of day-to-day life.
Shot entirely from the point of view of security cameras, Adam Rifkin’s hit Showtime series Look is about the things that people do when they don’t know they’re being watched and takes you on a voyeuristic journey into the most personal parts of their lives.
Look around you and wonder…who is watching?

The concept is hidden cameras. They are everywhere, and the program treats you as if you were sitting in a booth that had access to all hidden cameras in the world and could follow the lives of multiple people seamlessly and effortlessly. It is a first person peeping Tom and as fun as it is, it is also equally disturbing at how, if you think about it, all of the cameras used to make the storylines come together are all completely pheasible and real. We are all, at all times, capable of being watched.
The show locks into 8 to 10 people and through hidden cameras tells their stories. At times, the camera shots are mundane and rudamentary, but that is part of the fun. It makes it real. The actors involved should all be commended for achieving a level of realness that sells the gimmick. Never once in the entire run of Season 1, did I think that these are actors, although I know they are because some are very familiar. Ali Corbin was just a big part of the new release of "American Reunion", for instance.
This is an outstanding show and when Season 1 concluded with a gasping moment, I scrambled to the internet to see if Season 2 was available. I hope it will be soon.
