Do you watch the television show Catfish? If your answer is yes, then you will love the new original MTV series Suspect! Hosted by Nev Schulman (Catfish host) and his co-host iO (artist, activist, and writer), the two travel across America to people who are hiding their deepest, darkest secrets from their family and friends. Nev and iO seek to untangle the web of lies created with the hopes of bringing resolution and peace of mind to the concerned loved ones who feel as though they have nowhere else to turn. This season of Suspect tackles the problems of secret identities, addictions, and a plethora of other dishonesties that can lead one down a dangerous path.
The show takes the struggles of everyday people and brings them right into our living rooms. Ultimately it raises awareness. There is an episode about a person who is struggling with telling their friends about transitioning into a woman, and there is even an episode about a girl who dropped out of college to pursue her music career (we’ve all thought about it). These people are all around us and it is interesting to watch the intricacies of their problems develop and how they cope with them in the end. It is usually followed with a ton of support and positivity from their family and friends. The show sheds a positive light onto these problems and lets us all know that it is okay to be yourself no matter the circumstances.
If you’re interested in watching—one episode will get you completely hooked—tune in every Wednesday after Catfish at 11:00 PM ET/PT. Each week will feature two different stories to follow, and hopefully it will spark some interesting conversations between you and your friends!
