Kiss Me First, an innovative thriller series written by Bryan Elsley (Skins), is coming to E4 and Netflix.
The new six-part drama will be produced by Balloon and Kindle Entertainment, and will premiere on E4 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.

We are thrilled to be welcoming Bryan Elsley back to E4 to lead a group of new writers and to helm this exciting new show.”
Larry Tanz, Vice President Global Television at Netflix, said: “Netflix is committed to bringing the work of bold and innovative voices like Bryan’s to our subscribers around the world. Kiss Me First is a show with global themes and resonance, and we are proud to launch the show simultaneously across the entire world, exclusively on Netflix immediately after its broadcast in the UK.”
