AN ENERGETIC GROUP OF TEENS USE YOUTUBE TO EXPLORE THE ISSUES OF THE DAY
This upbeat, live action comedy follows teens Taylor, Maddie, Lucas, Jet and George as they gather in a ramshackle makeshift studio space they have created, in order to produce and record their YouTube opinion-based show Get Involved. Juggling homework and training while managing group dynamics and social pressures, the teens are committed to Get Involved - which empowers them to voice their concerns and rally their viewers around issues and topics that are important to them.
Their greatest obstacle is their local Mayor, a self-serving politician with an evil agenda, who creates havoc within the community and motivates the teens to stand up for their beliefs. High drama and comedic conflict is the order of the day, as they determine to stay on track and get the job done.
Each episode skilfully brings to the surface social, political and environmental issues and topics from a teen’s perspective – with the themes carried through to the YouTube content the teens are producing.
