The Hook has launched Sex Drive, an intergenerational comedy about sex, love and relationships. Sex Drive explores modern relationships through a series of Carpool Karaoke-style conversations between millennial celebrities and a family member.

The comedy series features hilarious, shocking and heartwarming stories on topics such as dating apps, falling in love, celibacy, one-night stands and living in a thruple. The series will go live weekly on a Thursday across The Hook’s channels.
The series features a number of awkward disclosures, shocking stories and hilarious encounters, with the celebrities divulging their amusing and sometimes unbelievable tales on dating and love. Sex Drive shines a light on how opinions towards sex and sexuality have changed dramatically over the last generation, whilst also exposing the heartwarming relationships between our celebrities and their loved ones.
“Sex Drive is the first series launch from an upcoming suite of new commissions for The Hook, focusing on high quality, engaging digital content. We are proud to be working with great talent who not only have a large social presence but are also household names and highlight the huge ambitions we have to bring The Hook front and centre for comedy and entertainment. By pairing family members together to discuss previously considered taboo subjects, the audience will not only laugh but also relate to the refreshingly confessional, personal and upfront conversations.”
