Hot Set is an American reality television game show on the Syfy cable network in which a group of production artists compete against each other to create movie sets. Ben Mankiewicz serves as the show's host, with judges being Curt Beech, Lilly Kilvert, and Barry Robison.[1]

Each week, the artists must build a "hot set" that tests their artistry and techniques to create a fully functioning film set to match a theme over the course of 3 days, using a budget of $15,000. The first two days allows for concept design and building, a third day of filming and judging. The judges then have the opportunity to look at the sets from afar and up close. One artist will be deemed the winner, receiving a cash reward of $10,000.[2]
