The six-part drama is produced by Kindle Entertainment and Balloon Entertainment, and will premiere on Channel 4 in the UK with Netflix streaming the series globally outside the UK. Kiss Me First is an adaptation of Lottie Moggach’s best-selling young adult novel of the same name.
It features state of the art animation sequences evoking the gaming world and the stories of the young people who meet clandestinely there. This virtual world alongside live action narrative will provide a platform for exploring the loneliness and isolation experienced by young people and the disparity between appearance and reality in the social media age.
Bryan Elsley (Executive Producer), Melanie Stokes (Executive Producer), Richard Scott (CEO Axis Studios) and Paula Bird (Head of Content Production, Axis Studios) will join us for Q&A after a screening of the first episode to discuss how they collaborated to create this new & innovative thriller series.
This event is supported by Channel 4.
