casting call for a BBC 3 comedy pilot The Bright Side back in September.
Filming is now underway and 18 year old Georgia Groome, star of Angus Thongs, and who recently wrapped on The Great Ghost Rescue, has been cast in the lead role of quirky Leigh-Ann.
Also cast are original Skins star April Pearson and ex-Grange Hill/Waterloo Road rising star Reece Noi as Jaffers.
The sitcom is described as 'a female version of The Inbetweeners'.
The comedy focuses around three 16 year-olds. Leigh Ann is a quirky teenager who is not the coolest girl in school. Her best friends are goth Clare and nerdy Nousheen.
