Prime Video will cause pandemonium in paradise with new reality series, Hot Mess Summer, hosted by Rylan. The six-part series – made by Naked, a Fremantle label – will launch in 2024 exclusively to Prime members in the UK and Ireland.
Eight party-loving Brits, all a liability on a night out, are challenged to spend the summer on the other side of the bar—running one of Zante’s busiest party spots.
The eight hedonists all think they’re coming for a summer of fun, but have really been nominated by their friends—who are sick of their antics on nights out—to successfully run the bar at the height of holiday season, doing everything from mixing cocktails to cleaning toilets. If they can work together and resist temptation they could share a big cash prize. But that’s easier said than done for these hilarious Hot Messes …
Rylan said, “Hot Mess Summer is going to be funny, entertaining, chaotic and everything you’d expect from a Zante bar. But our eight party lovers are hopefully going to take away real life lessons as they go from being the party animal to having instrumental roles in running a successful bar. All I’ll say is that it’s not as easy as it sounds …”
Managing director of Naked, Tom O’Brien, said, “Hot Mess Summer is a wild, totally unfiltered, heart-warming summer success story, with an unforgettable cast and an epic rug-pull reveal. Thanks to Prime Video, who have been great new partners for us, too.”
Hot Mess Summer was produced by Fremantle label Naked (The Apprentice, Grand Designs). The executive producer for Naked is Gyles Neville. Sarah Church is series producer for Naked and Adam O’Neil is Naked’s series edit producer. Fremantle has international production and distribution rights to the Hot Mess Summer format.
Hot Mess Summer will launch exclusively on Prime Video in the UK and Ireland in 2024.
