Some Girls is about the lives and loves of a group of 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.
At the heart of the comedy is Viva (Adelayo Adedayo, Skins), whose ambition is to “stay motivated” and become a top child psychologist on Living.
In the meantime she’s happy analysing her friends. She lives with her dad Rob (Colin Salmon - Rev, Todd Margaret, James Bond, Resident Evil) who is “hot for an old guy” and her stepmother Anna (Dolly Wells - Spy, Star Stories), a New Zealander who also happens to be Viva’s sadistic PE teacher.
Viva is great friends with Holli (Natasha Jonas - Attack The Block) whose entertaining, violent outbursts are legendary. Saz (Mandeep Dhillon - Some Dogs Bite) and Amber (Alice Felgate - The Cabin) complete 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.
