Eye Candy centers on tech genius Lindy, a 21-year-old woman who is persuaded by her roommate, Sophia (Kiersey Clemons), to begin online dating. Unfortunately, she begins to suspect that one of her suitors might be a deadly cyber stalker. She teams up with her friends, a band of hackers, to solve the murders he committed while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City in an attempt to find her sister, Sara (Jordyn DiNatale), who has gone missing.
Newly-paroled Lindy celebrates her newfound freedom with her best friends, who also happen to be a group of Internet hackers just like her. Lindy is set up with an account on an app called Flirtual, with the pseudonym "Eye Candy", when her friends want her to embrace the start of her new life with someone special. Lindy later realizes somebody is following her and discovers a stalker has taken an interest in her online profile. Lindy tries to use her hacking skills to her advantage, but this anonymous person proves stronger and more twisted than she expected. This stalker is believed to be a serial killer. Lindy and her friends decide to band together to stop the serial killer from striking again, while also searching for Lindy's missing sister, Sara, on the streets of New York City.
Reeling from a tragic murder, Lindy is determined to find the killer by going on dates with two suspects. However, as she begins to let new people into her life, she puts herself and her friends on a dangerous killer's radar.
After a fresh abduction, Lindy's obsession with finding the killer grows. Her worlds collide when Sophia throws a party while Jake starts to develop a crush on Lindy, though he's emerged as the lead suspect in the case.
Lindy investigates the disappearance of five teens using her gift of deciphering clues hidden in social media. Lindy and Tommy are led to an unexpected place, as well as to her new relationship with the Cyber Crimes Unit.
Production began on September 15, 2014, and ended on December 20, 2014, in Brooklyn, New York City.
Christian Taylor explained during the interview that he had a specific structure for how the 10-episode season would play out: The first three episodes center around the main serial killer, setting up their story and pointing Lindy in a singular direction. Episodes 4-7 act more as standalone cases, resembling more to a CSI story of the week episode; the final three episodes revert back to the original serial killer focus.
