Hot Line is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series In The Dark. It was originally broadcast in 1995.


  • Recordings of a telephone psychic and tarot card reader.
  • A woman with seemingly delusional love interests calls: a stranger on an elevator makes her happy. Looking young because of pain and suffering. Angels. A man repeatedly calls her on the phone, never says a word. While she's in the hospital, a state trooper sneaks into her house and re-arranges objects in symbolic ways which please her. Her relationship with a stranger who repeatedly drives past her house. The psychic advises her to get out more.
  • The psychic talks to someone else who asks, "does he love me?"
  • An insurance company representative calls with a wrong number, and he keeps her talking for several minutes.
  • A man talks about missing his father. His father commandeered a street sweeper and drove into a cemetery, stripped his apartment before dying. Waking up next to it and discovering that you are its it. People avoid the lonely.
