Today, the mainstream broadcaster lifted the lid on the four-part “docu-ality,” which is set to hit screens beginning September 10.
The show is billed as chronicling the lives and loves of a group of ambitious, glamourous young British West Africans all chasing their own idea of success.
Pictured above, the includes (L-R): Toni, Kamille, Tomi, Chiefer, Bernicia, Cuppy, Kiddwaya, and Irene.
‘Highlife’ will spotlight a community where high family expectations often impact career choices, relationships, and even friendship circles.
Viewers will bear witness to the aspirational but totally relatable authentic portrayal of Black British life.
‘Highlife’ is co-produced by CR8TIVE ROW and Optomen.
Now, this is our kind of TV.
For years, the UK has loved and lapped up shows such as ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ and the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ but simultaneously longed for something that speaks to the nuance of the Black British scene.
Finally, at long last, it looks like ‘Highlife’ will be filling that void.
Roll on September 10!
