New British Comedy Drama Changing On-Screen Stereotypes

By  | 

BFF Studios present, Good Fellas, a coming of age British comedy-drama written by Andrew Prince.

The plot follows the lives of a group of teenage friends whose personalities you wouldn’t usually see on British TV. As they navigate the unfamiliar terrains of college life in Surrey, we soon learn that the pressures of A-Levels are not at the forefront of their minds. We journey with all five boys as they explore young adulthood from sex, heartbreak to ludicrous house parties.

It’s The Fresh Prince of Bel Air meets The Inbetweeners! The show stars new and fresh British talents, Andrew Prince, Kwame Augustine, AJ Bediako, Michael Bordom and Kwame Agyei.

Andrew Prince creator and writer says, “My aim is to write comedy that engages and entertains people of all races and genders. Our cast and show reflects the diverse Britain that I live in, a multi ethnic, and vibrant nation. We need to see more content like this on our TV screens.”

The show introduces a mix of families from different ethnicities that form the bedrock of the show and reflect the diverse country we live in today, all with a comedic backdrop.

Producer, Stephané Alexandre says, “The Good Fellas team are passionate about telling stories that reflect Britain. Our show places 5 young boys that don’t fit into the conventional stereotypes of young black males on British television today.”

This new show is bringing something fresh and new, finally portraying black people in a far from negative light. Although the first episode is not yet released, the trailer clearly shows that black people can be weird, silly, socially awkward and get into hilarious situations just like everyone else.

Good Fellas, Season One hits our screens in 2017! Watch the trailer above:
