Netflix picked up Channel 4 series The Circle in a sensational swoop for one of the UK’s most popular reality TV series.

While the original show will still air on C4 at the end of summer, an American version of the series has been given the green light on Netflix and will air in late 2019.

The show mixes social media with reality TV and is considered the ultimate modern-day series with the notion of being a catfish at the centre of attention.
