Is the Technical Stuff in 'Mr. Robot' Real?


*The show hired real IT professionals as tech producers and writers
*The show's Technical Producer, Kor Adana, called one of his former colleagues for assistance on some hacking aspects of the plot.
*He was compensated by having a character named after him, James Plouffe, [Spoiler (click to open)]who ended killing himself on live TV
*First the writers will sketch out storylines for WHAT will happen and the technical consulting team will develop HOW it will happen.
*Shows/movies sometimes focus more on computer graphics rather than the actual hacking, or they treat hacking as a deus ex machina to move the plot forward.
*The technical consultants hope Mr. Robot will help people become more aware of cybersecurity.
