Juice follows Jamma who desperately wants to be the centre of attention, but his family are constantly stealing his thunder. Mum, Farida always makes everything about her, Dad, Saif , ignores him and brother, Isaac, steals the limelight at work - the one place Jamma feels like he's doing well. And when he finally does get the validation from boyfriend Guy, he can't handle it. Jamma's hyperactive imagination goes into overdrive and the world transforms around him.

The pilot features Mawaan Rizwan's unique blend of heartfelt, confessional storytelling and his messy yet hilarious relationships with his family.
