Plot Synopsis

Based on the web series of the same name, HOT DATE is a half-hour sketch comedy series that spotlights modern-day relationships and dating dilemmas. The series stars real-life married couple Emily Axford and Brian K. Murphy, who play multiple couples -- and even some of the supporting characters -- as they lampoon social mores of dating, sex and marriage while touching on hot topics such as the difficulty of making friends in adulthood, the pitfalls of dating for money, and spicing up sex lives. During the series, Axford and Murphy portray: Beth and Seth, suburbanites trying to resuscitate their wild sides...without wrinkling their Ralph Lauren chinos; Loretta, a single mom whose teenage son, Kyle, reluctantly introduces her to the world of dating apps; Brad, a broken hearted Renaissance Faire enthusiast who is oft-mistaken for a cool hipster; Bridgette, a nightmare millennial who doesn't do anything without snapping photos to prove how amazing her life is; and of course, Emily and Murph, sneaky and self-serving dirt bags who are perfect for each other...but toxic for everyone else. Guest stars include: executive producer Will Arnett (in the "For Real, Where Have All My Friends Gone" episode), Kevin Pollak ("Double Standards"), Ben Schwartz ("Gold Diggers"), and Mena Suvari ("Relationship Goals").
On Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at 11pm ET/PT, Pop premiered the Season 1 finale of HOT DATE. In the season ender, "Blackout Brunch," Murph and Emily wake up bloodied and disoriented in an alley, piecing together what happened after a bottomless mimosa brunch. Emotions run high when Bridget has a run-in with Brad, and Laura freaks out over Mike's choices in friends and beverages.
