Hot Shot (Chinese: 籃球火; pinyin: Lan Qiu Huo; lit.: 'Basketball Fire') is a Taiwanese drama starring Jerry Yan of F4, Show Lo, and Wu Chun of Fahrenheit. It was produced by Comic International Productions (可米國際影視事業股份有限公司)[1] and directed by Lin He Long (林合隆).

It was first broadcast in Taiwan on free-to-air China Television (CTV) (中視) from 27 July 2008[2] to 9 November 2008, on Sundays at 22:00 to 23:30 and cable TV Gala Television (GTV) Variety Show/CH 28 (八大綜合台) on 2 August 2008 to 15 November 2008, every Saturday at 21:30 to 23:00. This show was also broadcast in Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines.


In a school where academic reigns supreme and sports were relegated to a dusty corner of the campus, Li Ying vowed to revive the basketball team by volunteering to be the coach of the basketball team. Her first member was Yuan Da Ying, a boy from the countryside who was passionate for basketball but had no skills. Their recruitment went into a high gear when Dong Fang Xiang, a legendary basketball player, transferred to their school.

Around the same time, Yuan Da Ying fell for Zhan Jie Er, a scholarship student who reminds him of his childhood friend Gu Gu Ji. Things were complicated by the fact her family works for Dong Fang Xiang, who she also grew up with. Their encounter may just rewrite the school's basketball history.
