Some Girls

Filming has begun in South London on another comedy drama series for BBC Three called Some Girls, written by Bernadette Davis (Game On), and directed by Adam Miller  for Hat Trick Productions.

The six-part series follows "the lives and loves of a group of four quirky 16 year old girls who play on the same school football team and live on the same inner city estate". We join them on their bumpy journey through adolescence taking in boys, sex, cliques, teachers, heartbreak, fun and even some football along the way.

Adelayo Adedayo stars as Viva, a working class, innercity girl who lives on an estate with her Dad (played by Colin Salmon) and her younger brother Jamie. Viva is intelligent, hard-working and a little shy, but by no means boring She is part of a very close-knit group of four friends and of the group, she is the one they all go to for advice. Adelayo featured in Series 4 of Skins, played in Sket. She attends Identity Drama School and was featured in the article in The Guardian article "From Hackney to Hollywood"

Natasha Jonas (represented by DAA), who played Gloria in last year's hit feature Attack The Block, is Viva's friend Holli, whose entertaining, violent outbursts are legendary.

Mandeep Dhillon (represented by Piers Nimmo Management) who featured alongside Thomas Sangster in TV movie Some Dogs Bite plays Saz,

and 18 year old Harrodian Alice Felgate (who starred in Hallmark TV movie The Cabin) as Amber completes the gang.

They talk about everything from history homework to their ambitions in life. They share everything: their clothes, their moods, their secrets and - occasionally - their mothers' tranquillisers.

Producer Justin Davies commented: "Some Girls is a very funny snapshot of four underdogs. It is an unadulterated celebration of teenage life; messy, sexy and a little bit wrong – but always lots of fun."
