Lottie Moggach’s KISS ME FIRST adapted for Channel 4 and Netflix

Lottie Moggach’s debut novel, KISS ME FIRST, has been adapted into a six-part television series by Bryan Elsley, creator of Skins.

KISS ME FIRST follows 17-year-old Leila (Tallulah Haddon) as she navigates a virtual paradise online that quickly proves itself to be something much more dangerous.

The programme uses a combination of live action and computer-generated sequences to portray online personas alongside the real lives of the characters in the story. In doing so, the programme highlights the disparity between appearances and reality in the online world, and the resulting sense of isolation and loneliness.

The first episode will air at 10pm on Monday 2nd April on Channel 4. Following the UK broadcast, the series will be available for streaming outside the UK on Netflix. The trailer is available to watch on the Channel 4 website.
