A Three-Ring ‘Circle’?

Yesterday, we told you about Circle, a 24/7 country music lifestyle channel launching next Wednesday, January 1. Today, we’ll tell you about The Circle, a three-week reality competition series launching the very same day on Netflix. If your own lifestyle involves a deceptive social media identity, you may well identify with the players.

We don’t know much about The Circle except that a new episode will premiere on three consecutive Wednesdays, the winner will get  a $100,000 prize, and Netflix promises “truth, lies, and influencer ties — players will be whoever and do whatever it takes to win.” The Circle also seems to be based on a British series of the same title.

Here’s Netflix’s trailer:

If this looks like a great way to start your new year, visit Netflix.com/TheCircle.

Call us square if you like, but we don’t plan on watching either of the new Circles come New Year’s Day.
