Packed with pathos, humour and taut reality, Youthless is a brutally honest account of creator Jordon Scott Kennedy's own formative years, growing up on Dewsbury Moor Estate.
Series one will be set in the Summer of 2000. While it might have been new beginnings for the rest of Britain, estates across the UK were disconnected, shunned and left to fend for themselves. But for kids on this estate, every Summer is their place to dream and experience what childhood is meant to be, an adventure. At every turn, they are confronted by the looming draw of adulthood and adults who are desperately trying to hang on to their own youth in any way they can find it.
“ Rollem is the ideal fit for me because of Kay Mellor's incredible legacy and the company's track record of developing new voiced and underrepresented talent ”Jordon Scott Kennedy - Creator of Youthless
“ Jordon Scott Kennedy has a great future ahead of him. I thought Youthless (short film) showed tremendous talent and there is an underrepresented audience for this TV project ”Jimmy McGovern - Legendary UK Screenwriter
Securing Jordon's IP is part of Rollem's commitment to the development of new voices and continuing Kay Mellor's legacy.
This comes as Kay's final stage play, an adaptation of The Syndicate was announced last month, and distribution of her iconic series' Fat Friends and The Chase were picked up by Banijay Rights and Abacus Media Rights respectively.
