Dead Hot which is set in Liverpool, is Prime Video’s latest UK original series, and it launched on Friday 1 March.

Dead Hot is a new comedy-thriller series set in Liverpool which explores family, class, love, trauma, and identity. Bilal Hasna and BAFTA nominated Vivian Oparah take the helm as protagonists Elliot and Jess, navigating the highs and lows, and complexities of their mid-twenties.

What’s Dead Hot About?

Set in present-day Liverpool, twenty-somethings Elliot and Jess are best friends united by a bond of grief at losing Peter—the first and only love of Elliot and Jess’ twin brother. It’s been five years since Peter went missing in mysterious circumstances, and still reeling from the trauma, the best friends spiral into a hedonistic lifestyle, partying to numb their grief while clinging to a small hope that they will one day find out what happened. 

When Elliot meets Will, he starts to think he can put the past behind him. But when Elliot learns Will has his own dark secrets, just as Jess is contacted by somebody claiming to be her brother, it sets into motion a determination for the pair to find out if Elliot’s romantically cursed—or being targeted.

Further cast includes Rosie Cavaliero (Funny Woman)Rebekah Murrell (The Pact), Alan Turkington (Heartstopper)Brandon Fellows (The Stranger) and rising star Marcus Hodson.
