"Eye Candy" (TV show) is a thriller series on MTV that centers on tech genius Lindy, played by Victoria Justice, a 21-year-old hacker with a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can't.

Persuaded by her roommate to try online dating, Lindy begins to suspect that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker. When the local cyber-crimes unit uncovers a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to this mysterious stalker. Teaming up with the cyber unit
and some hacker friends, Lindy leads the charge to solve these murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.

Lindy's been powerfully shaped by two life events. The first was the horrific abduction of her younger sister, Sara. In the aftermath of that trauma, Lindy dropped out of college, moved to New York, and became a hacker so she could dedicate herself to finding Sara, while occasionally bending the law to help others with their own unsolved missing persons cases.

Ben is a detective in the cyber-crimes unit who fell in love with her while he secretly had her under surveillance for her clandestine investigations. After Ben arrested her, she never forgave him, even though he claimed that he saved her from a worse fate. Now, as Lindy finds herself the latest target of a serial killer, she's forced to use her hacking talents and work with her ex.

The cast also includes Casey Deidrick as Tommy, Kiersey Clemons as Sophia, John Garet Stoker as Connor, and Harvey Guillen as George.

Sophia is Lindy's hip, gorgeous and vibrant best friend and roommate who owns the popular downtown nightclub IRL. Two years ago, Sophia rescued Lindy from perpetual couch surfing when she first moved to New York by inviting her to crash in her apartment — and Lindy never left.

Connor is Sophia's other best friend — a young blogger for a gossip site. He has a friendly rivalry with Lindy, and supports Sophia's attempts to get Lindy to join a dating app, helping Lindy navigate potential matches. Always having to share Sophia's attentions with Lindy, Connor has his own selfish reasons for wanting Lindy to have a boyfriend.

Tommy, the dry-witted New York native descends from a long line of cops and now works in the NYPD Cyber Unit. He's smart, tough, no-nonsense, and started as a beat cop before working his way up to Cyber detective. Tommy is skeptical of Lindy's tactics and motivations, but he decides to work with her when his partner, Ben, starts helping Lindy track the stalker.

George is Lindy's friend, confidante, and coworker at her day job in the IT department of a financial company. A fellow hacker, George has always helped Lindy out when she needed assistance whether its legal or slightly left of the law.
