Let's face it, The Only Way Is Essex and Made in Chelsea have been on our screens for over a decade now. So we've been desperately in need of some new, more diverse, reality shows for a long time. But things are changing. Highlife - which followed a group of young British West Africans - aired on Channel 4 last month as part of the channel's Black To Front initiative. And now another new show is coming to ITV, Peckham's Finest, which will follow a group of south-east London's young Black creatives.
The series - which will air weekly on ITV2 - is being described as an 'observational documentary' and will liven up the reality format by following the cast member's careers. But, of course, the show will also '[capture] all aspects of their lives, from blossoming romances to doomed relationships, from new friendships to broken ties and new ventures'. So yep, it definitely sounds like something we're going to be adding it to our TV watch list. (FYI, the launch date is October 20 - and we can't wait.)
But, before you tune in, here's a quick introduction to the cast...
