“Taylor Hillridge had everything”, goes the preview for US ABC Family’s new TV movie Cyberbully, “until her online life crashed into her real life”. A dramatisation of the new, scary problems facing congressmen and 15-year-old girls everywhere.

It will be interesting to see what kind of shmaltzy lesson ABC Family can wring out of the messy issue of cyberbullying. Maybe, “Don’t reuse your password?” Hopefully there’s a scene in the movie where she and her mum appear on ABC’s Good Morning America – which has become the premiere outlet for victims of cyberbullying – to recount her harrowing tale. Synergy!
