First-look images from the upcoming comedy drama “Boarders,” produced by BBC Three, have been unveiled.

The new six-part series, crafted by the acclaimed writer Daniel Lawrence Taylor (known for “Timewasters”), follows the journey of five talented underprivileged black students from inner-city London who secure scholarships at St. Gilberts, an elite boarding school. Produced by Studio Lambert (responsible for “The Nest” and “Three Girls”), in collaboration with All3Media International for the BBC, the series is scheduled to premiere on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer in 2024.

These recently released images offer a sneak peek into the cast, featuring Josh Tedeku (known for “Supacell” and “A Town Called Malice”) as Jaheim, Jodie Campbell (from “Bulletproof” and “No Return”) as Leah, Myles Kamwendo (credited in “The School for Good and Evil”) as Omar, alongside screen debutants Sekou Diaby as Toby and Aruna Jalloh as Femi. Derek Riddell (“Happy Valley,” “Gentleman Jack”) takes on the role of headmaster Bernard, while Niky Wardley (“Queen of Oz,” “The Catherine Tate Show”) portrays Carol Watlington-Geese, the Chair of the Board. Both are featured in the initial images.

The snapshots also include images of Boarders creator and writer Daniel Lawrence Taylor, who appears on screen as Gus, a mentor to St. Gilbert’s five newest students.

As previously announced, additional cast members include Harry Gilby (“Tolkien”), Tallulah Greive (“Our Ladies,” “Cinderella”), Rosie Graham (“The School for Good and Evil,” “Sanditon”), Georgina Sadler (“The A List”), and newcomers Assa Kanoutè and Archie Fisher.

“Boarders” is a vibrant coming-of-age comedy drama. After a viral video controversy involving a student, the protagonists are offered sixth-form scholarships to St. Gilbert’s to restore the school’s image. They find themselves immersed in a world reminiscent of Harry Potter, with lush playing fields, grandeur, and intricate social rules they must quickly navigate to survive. The series takes the characters on a journey of self-discovery, exploring their identity and the challenges of living alongside the one percent, revealing that it is vastly different from their previous experiences.

Daniel Lawrence Taylor, the creator, and lead writer of “Boarders” collaborated with Emma Dennis-Edwards, Yemi Oyefuwa, and Ryan Calais Cameron in the writing room. The series is directed by Ethosheia Hylton (“African Queens,” “Sanditon”) and Sarmad Masud (“You Don’t Know Me,” “Bulletproof”), produced by Alison MacPhail (“Uncle,” “Nighty Night”) with Carleen Beadle-Larcombe serving as line producer. Executive producers include Daniel Lawrence Taylor, Madeleine Sinclair, and Susan Hogg for Studio Lambert, along with Nawfal Faizullah and Ayela Butt for the BBC. The Musical Director for the series is Mykaell Riley, known for his role in the British roots Reggae band Steel Pulse and Britain’s first black pop orchestra, The Reggae Philharmonic Orchestra.

“Boarders,” filmed in the South West of England, is set to air on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer in 2024, with distribution handled by All3Media International.
