Q: Into The Storm, a six-part documentary series from director Cullen Hoback (Terms and Conditions May Apply) and Executive Producer Adam McKay (HBO’s Succession), charts a labyrinthine journey to uncover the forces behind QAnon. Spanning three years in the making and traversing the globe, the series follows filmmaker Hoback as he investigates the movement fueled by conspiracy theories that has grown in scope and political significance, chronicling its evolution in real time, and revealing how “Q” uses information warfare to game the internet, hijack politics, and manipulate people’s thinking. Hoback gains unprecedented access to key players including Jim and Ron Watkins, the father/son team behind the 8chan website which “Q” calls home, explores their rivalry with Fredrick Brennan, the original creator of the platform, and interviews “Q-tubers,” Q debunkers, political operatives, and journalists who have been closely following the movement since it began in 2017. The series examines the connections between QAnon, President Trump, and political and ex-military operatives. It also explores QAnon’s influence on American culture and politics and probes the consequences of unfettered free speech permeating the darkest corners of the internet.
