My Mad Fat Teenage Diary is focused on portraying real life issues that teenager's and youngsters go through such as: self-perception and confidence.
E4 has a reputation for taking serious issues and portraying them more lightly. Based on the popular book written by Rae Earl, My Mad Fat diary follows suit by focusing on the story of a young 16-year-old girl who has just come out of a psychiatric hospital. With her secret kept to herself she attempts to embark on "normal" life although she faces immense difficulty, especially since she is very insecure and suffers from depression due to her self portrayal.
Rachel, played by Sharon Rooney, struggles to maintain her secrets and even finds it harder to settle in. The series focuses on the trials and tribulations of being young and un-happy with yourself.
A slightly darker turn for E4 but proved popular with E4 viewers. It has been confirmed that E4 are re-commissioning a second series.
This project required numerous days working on different episodes on different locations. As usual our team were available on the phone 24/7 or on-site offering personal maintenance.Kit List:
