Yo! Wa gwan blud? 'Teen London': an exciting, edgy and authentic comedy drama inspired and created by urban young people; those living it for real blud. Ya get me?
A world of raging hormones and fitting in; of teen angst and dodgy fashions; of mad crazes, phone apps, chicken & chips and indecipherable Jafaican patois. Safe blud. Safe.
It's about escaping from the school bully, getting out of -- like -- pointless homework; dealing with dodgy teachers and -- like -- parents who are so uncool and embarrassing. Replete with raw teen humour and with a sprinkling of honest social commentary on top 'Teen London' pulls no punches.
A fascinating, side-splitting insight into what makes "kids nowadays" tick (and ting).
Gimme your time blud, innit though. Laterz.
Special thanks to Alexandra Park School for allowing us to use their school as a location, and to Gladesmore Community School for allowing us to use their brilliant 'Everybody Dreams' song.
