Synopsis: Ever wonder: if I died tomorrow, who would come to my funeral?
"Friended to Death" tracks the comedic extremes to which a desperate Facebook addict will go to find out who his true friends are. After being fired from his dream job and ditched by his best friend (Zach McGowan – "Shameless," "Black Sails"), Michael (Ryan Hansen - "Veronica Mars", NBC's Bad Judge", "2 Broke Girls") begins to question whether anyone would care if he died.
Wounded and vengeful, with nothing more to lose than his own inflated ego, Michael does what any social media-obsessed loner would do: he fakes his death online to see who shows up at his staged funeral. But what begins as a simple litmus test for friendship combusts into a nuclear meltdown, leaving Michael to contain the fallout. A tongue-in-cheek commentary and hilarious examination of friendship in today’s hyper-connected world of social media.
