More Than This – Written by teens for teens.

More Than This follows five diverse 17-year-old students, Charlotte, Alex, Zali, Jamie and Leon and their teacher Mr E, who are thrown together in an English tutoring group.

Charlotte and Alex are childhood friends, but Charlotte and Leon have history, and Leon’s girlfriend Allegra (Legs) is not happy.

Recently out non-binary student Jamie finds their tribe through Zali, but fails to see that Zali is hiding a dark secret.

Alex is bombing out of year 12 for a second time and buying weed from local dealer Sammy to keep his seizures at bay. Charlotte’s dad’s addictions force her to make a difficult choice.

Authentically raw and true, More Than This explores the contemporary global issues surrounding the teen life that is relationships, sexuality, school grades, their online social life, family pressures and taking risks.

Working with the ACTF team we developed various Key Art for this groundbreaking TV show written by teens for teens.
