  • We chose this channel because of programmes like: Skins This Is England 86’ Misfits Inbetweeners All these programmes are about groups of friends which is partly true in ours aswell. According to Thinkbox: Audience Profiles, males aged 16-34 are likely to watch channels such as Bravo, Sky1, Sky Sports, Sky Sports News & Channel 4, seeing as our target audience is 18-40 we feel this fits in with the channel.
  • Settings: We chose Brentford as our setting as it’s a popular Lower League Club and we know the area around Brentford.
  • Griffin park
