(26 x 22 min for tweens)
6TEEN is an animated situation comedy for tweens set entirely in a gigantic shopping mall! It's minimum wages and maximum laughs as we follow our ensemble cast of six sixteen-year-old friends trying to make it through their first part-time jobs and life as a teen.
6TEEN is about the important stuff – firsts. First crushes, first jobs, first bank accounts and most importantly, that first taste of freedom… of course, not all firsts are positive. Nikki finds herself stuck (in what she considers a sick twist of fate) working at The Khaki Barn, a store that she wouldn't be caught dead shopping in. Jen's scored her dream job at a sports shop, but her meathead ex-gym coach boss, Coach Halder, keeps throwing her in the penalty box for messing up. Jonesy manages to get his butt fired from a new store in every single episode, Wyatt's hopelessly in love with his older co-worker, and Caitlin endures the daily humiliation of working in the lowest store in the mall's hierarchy of cool – The Big Squeeze, a giant lemon. No “most embarrassing moment” in these teens' lives will be left unturned, and at times it can seem like there's an evil boss, awful customer or “frienemy” around every corner. But through it all, our group of six best friends learn to lean on one another.
From stumbling through relationships to dealing with hideous uniforms, the larger-than-life mall provides our characters with the perfect venue to spread their wings - and totally crash and burn trying.
Tune into 6TEEN: because life begins after school.
