“Highlighting a community where high family expectations often impact career choices, relationships and even friendship groups. The four-part docu-ality series is an aspirational but utterly relatable authentic portrayal of British life.”

Channel 4’s commissioning editor, Vivienne Molokwu also said, “This four-part series represents an exciting opportunity to portray a young Black Britain without a gun or gang in sight. Glossy, ambitious and unapologetic, just like it’s cast, this confident new series will look different both in front of and behind the camera whilst still reflecting the highs and lows of life in a way we can all relate to.”

CEO of co-producers CR8TIVE ROW, Daps also added: “There remains a lack of representation on British television. There are systemic issues that have disabled, or not enabled, certain groups to get key opportunities within the industry.

This reality-doc series combats both these issues celebrating a group of young successful Black Brits and highlights issues this demographic face in an accessible way.”
