A NEW scouse comedy series on ITVX, written by a man from Wirral, is available to watch from today (Monday, February 5).

G'wed was filmed across Wirral, Liverpool and Sefton over summer last year and features an "exciting cast of young talent alongside established actors".

Written by Danny Kenny, from Wallasey, and produced by Golden Path Productions Ltd, the six-part series is an uplifting, heart-warming and hilarious portrayal of teenagers today and how they view the world. 

It delves into the working-class culture of ‘surviving with a sense of humour’ with the distinctive voice of Liverpool and the lived experience of kids from the city, tackling issues such as grief, sex, diversity and class differences.

Speaking about the release of the show, Danny said: "It's really exciting that people can now watch G'wed, there's a lot of young local actors on the show and I hope they get the recognition they deserve for their hard work and talent, there's so much talent in Merseyside."

From Reece, the anti-hero at the heart of the show, a superficially misbehaving, potty-mouthed lad, who constantly surprises, whether that be quoting Mother Teresa, his knowledge of the work of John Steinbeck or his incredibly mature take on grief, to Aimee – ferociously determined, go-getting and emotionally mature – G’wed showcases a part of the country, and a bunch of characters, that you rarely see on TV.

You can watch all six episodes on ITVX now.
