"Cyberbully" (ABC TV movie) tells the story of Taylor Hillridge, a teenage girl who falls victim to online bullying, and the cost it nearly takes on her and her family. Taylor is a pretty 17-year-old high school student but a little awkward, and painfully aware of it. When her mom gives her a computer for her birthday, she is excited at the prospect of freedom and the independence of going online without her mother always looking over her shoulder. However, Taylor soon finds herself the victim of betrayal and bullying while visiting a social website, and afraid to face her peers at school, including her best friend, Samantha, she is pushed to a breaking point. It's only after this life-changing event that Taylor learns that she is not alone—meeting other teens, including a classmate, who has had similar experiences. Taylor's mom, Kris, reels from the incident and takes on the school system and state legislation to help prevent others from going through the same harrowing ordeal as her daughter.

"Cyberbully" stars Emily Osment ("Hannah Montana") as Taylor, Kelly Rowan ("The OC") as Kris, and Kay Panabaker ("No Ordinary Family") as Samantha. The movie was written by Teena Booth, was directed by Charles Binamé, and executive-produced by Michael Prupas and Joel Rice.
