Youngers
E4, the UK channel that launched hit original series like Skins and Misfits, has released the first trailer for a new half-hour drama series that they certainly hope will be as big a hit as the other 2, titled Youngers.

The series comes from Big Talk Productions, and is set within the UK urban music scene. Written by Levi David Addai, Georgia Lester (who also contributed to Skins) and Mark Catley, the series stars Jovian Wade, Percelle Ascott and comedy actor Dee Kartier.

Here's a description:

It's GCSE results day and friends Yemi and Jay nervously make their way to find out what the future holds. Aspiring producer Yemi aces his results, but there's no celebrating for Jay. Determined to swerve a career fixing boilers with his dad, MC Jay picks up a leaflet for Mic Star, a local music competition that could be his break into the urban music industry. But for these Youngers it's never going to be that easy... Witty and original, this comedy drama set in South East London follows a group of friends trying to negotiate their way through teenage life in a world that's more about swagger than straight As.

Channel 4's Sophie Gardiner said: "Youngers is a very exciting project for E4. Levi David Addai has written something utterly contemporary, witty and warm, which offers an insight into the lives of teenagers who have dreams and talent - a view of a world we don't often see."

Executive Producer, Luke Alkin added: "British urban music has gone mainstream but artists like Dizzee Rascal and Tinie Tempah were just like Jay and Yemi a few years ago, making music in their bedrooms and showcasing it on the internet. Levi David Addai captures this world in an incredibly fresh, funny and positive way. His characters are inner city teenagers with dreams and ambitions for the future - and this is what makes Youngers feel so original and exciting."

No broadcast ETA for Youngers yet; E4 just states that it'll be "coming soon," and not only to the UK; E4 adds that Youngers will also be distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide, so there's a chance it'll be broadcast Stateside on BBC America.

In the meantime, here's the first trailer:
