This brand new comedy pilot is written by best-selling author and award-winning columinst Caitlin Moran with her sister Caroline.

Set on a Wolverhampton council estate, the show is a modern-day reimagining of the Morans' real childhood - loads of kids, no money, none of them attending school, but all somehow incredibly well read, culturally aware, witty, curious, and wise.

All named after strong women, sisters Germaine, Aretha, Yoko, Mariah and baby Cher live with their brother Wyatt and their mother Della. Germaine and Aretha are the key characters. Germaine is in love with local lout Lee Rind, and dreams of a Jane Austen-style romance.

Aretha, with her love of Jung and Barack Obama, has a more realistic outlook. Constantly at loggerheads yet covering one another's backs, the sisters are trying to live the dream - when all Della wants them to do is mow the lawn.
