New Comedy Slice PRU confirmed for BBC Three

PRU is a comedy about a group of teens struggling to navigate adolescence in a Pupil Referral Unit, a school for excluded children.

This brand new Comedy Slice will authentically capture the unpredictable nature of PRU life, a world seldom seen by the public. It will be told through the eyes of four beautifully complex but seemingly self-destructive kids who say the unsayable and do the undoable.

The four teen leads will be found through an open casting process which will begin this week with Fully Focused putting out an online call for talent on its social pages.

Fully Focused are a youth-led production company at the forefront of online content creation. They are committed to centring underrepresented young voices in their work and the entire team behind PRU, from the writers (Alex Tenenbaum and Nathaniel Stevens) to the director (Teddy Nygh) have extensive experience of working with a wide range of young people, including in Pupil Referral Units, giving PRU unrivalled authenticity.
