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.
