It's official: 'Hot Skull' (Sıcak Kafa), the highly-anticipated Netflix Turkish original series which wrapped production earlier this year, will premiere on December 2nd.
Based on a novel by Afşin Kum with the same title, 'Hot Skull' is set in a world shaken by an epidemic of madness that spreads through language and speech. There is one person who is mysteriously unaffected by this disease: the reclusive former linguist Murat Siyavus. Hunted by the ruthless Anti-Epidemic Institution, Murat is forced to leave the safe zone and flee within the flames and ruins of the streets of Istanbul, where he searches for the secret of his “hot skull” - a lasting mark of the disease.
The eight-episode dystopian adventure story is produced by Timur Savcı and stars Osman Sonant, Şevket Çoruh, Hazal Subaşı, Tilbe Saran, Kubilay Tunçer, Özgür Emre Yıldırım, Gonca Vuslateri, Zerrin Sümer, Yetkin Dikinciler, Hakan Gerçek, Erdem Akakçe, Barış Yıldız, Arda Anarat, Furkan Kalabalık, Şebnem Hassanisoughi, Cüneyt Uzunlar, and Haluk Bilginer.
The series is created, directed, and written by Mert Baykal with extra writing credits to Zafer Külünk, Gökhan Şeker, and Müjgan Ferhan Şensoy.
