The film chronicles an online relationship between Manhattan photographer Nev Schulman and Megan Faccio, a woman who seemed simply too good to be true, prompting Nev, Ariel, and Henry to take a road trip to her in Michigan, where they discovered the real person behind Megan's digital persona.

In an exclusive interview with IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick, Nev Schulman explained the concept of the MTV series. "The premise of the show is, having gone through the experience of an online-relationship-turned-mystery-road-trip adventure, which is what Catfish was, I will now be in a position to facilitate other people’s Catfish adventures," he said. "So someone will reach out to me and say, 'I’m really into this guy, we’ve been talking online for months. He lives far away, we can’t afford to meet but we definitely want to, I think he is the one. Can you help?' So I’ll get the email, I’ll contact the sender via Skype, or cell phone, go wherever they live, and they’ll tell me their story all about their relationship. They guy or the girl will fill me in from their perspective. Then I’ll take them to a far away place to meet the person that they’ve been talking to. I’ll connect them for the first time in real life to discover, uncover, and reveal who they really are and have that essential face to face opportunity to be with one another for better or worse."
