Channel 4 and Netflix are adapting the novel 'Kiss Me First' which was shortlisted for the 2013 Guardian First Book Award. With skins writer Bryan Elsle and our very own Misha Manson-Smith directing we couldn't be more excited.
Heralded as a coming-of-age novel for the internet generation an adaption to screen seemed not only inevitable but hotly anticipated.
The series tells the story of Leila, a lonely 17-year-old girl who is addicted to a fictional online gaming site called Agora. While in Agora, Leila meets Tess, a cool and confident party girl who harbors a dark secret. In the real world the two become friends but after Tess disappears Leila decides to assume her friend’s identity and in doing so is quickly drawn into unravelling the mystery behind her disappearance.
