The Circle is based on a British TV series of the same name. Alongside the American version of The Circle, Netflix also launched different versions in France and Brazil, as part of a partnership between Netflix and All3Media. The series bills itself as a game based around social media, with the concept that “anyone can be anyone in The Circle.” It has been compared to Big Brother and Catfish in format, as well as Black Mirrorepisode “Nosedive” with the concept of ratings.
Within the show, contestants are isolated with their own apartments, and can only communicate to the other contestants via “The Circle”, ostensibly a computer program that transcribes their messages into text as if in a social media app. Contestants are thus able to present completely different identities to the others to hopefully win them over. Every so often, the group of contestants are asked to rate their fellow contestants, with the top vote-getters becoming the “Influencers” of the Circle, giving them the power to “block” one contestant from the circle, eliminating them from the game.
