Paramount+ has unveiled the official trailer for “CTRL+ALT+DESIRE,” a 3-part docuseries delving into the shocking true story of Grant Amato, set to premiere on April 16.


After director Colin Archdeacon’s exhaustive years-long investigation into the chilling killings that shook a tranquil Florida town, “CTRL+ALT+DESIRE” uncovers the disturbing case of Grant Amato.

Accused of executing his own family, the 29-year-old Florida man’s tale unravels at the crossroads of technology and solitude.

Amato’s descent into darkness began with an infatuation with Silvie, a Bulgarian cam girl, plunging him into addiction, deceit, and a perilous online obsession.

The series delves into four years of prison phone calls, along with clues scattered across Florida, Eastern Europe, and the deep web, revealing a narrative far more intricate than anticipated.

Despite his education and charm, Amato’s path veered into despair due to professional failures, leading to depression, isolation, and financial ruin.

To captivate Silvie’s attention, he assumed a confident ‘big spender’ persona online, funded by $200,000 stolen from his family.

However, as his fixation intensified, his alternate reality spun out of control.

CTRL+ALT+DESIRE” serves as a gripping cautionary tale, illustrating the perilous consequences when the boundaries between fantasy and reality blur beyond repair.
