G'wed

Series overview

New comedy. Honest, uplifting and heart-warming portrayal of the lives of working-class teenagers from Liverpool.

Starring Leanne Best, Louis Emerick, Sunetra Sarker and a host of brand new talent.

At the start of the series Reece, the anti-hero, is superficially a misbehaving, potty mouthed scally, but he constantly surprises whether that be quoting Mother Teresa and John Steinbeck or for his incredibly mature take on grief.

On his last warning with the Headteacher, he's given a life line in the guise of 16-year-old middle class Southerner Christopher, who joins the school unexpectedly and Reece offers to 'take care' of the new boy.

G'wed is an authentic portrayal of teenagers today and how they view the world.

Set in Liverpool and evocative of life for young working-class kids there, it delves into the Scouse culture of 'surviving with a sense of humour'.

Tackling big issues like grief, sex, diversity and class differences, treating them with a refreshing comedic perspective.
