The Juveniles

The You Art initiative

Adolescent life, the biggest tragge-comedy of them all! The Juveniles is a show that follows the lives of several high school juniors as they navigate the highs and lows of everyday life, and balance between the challenges of relationships, friendships, and self-acceptance.

Written and Shot entirely over the course of last summer (the infamous pandemic summer of 2020) the show's writer and creator Joshua D. Harris, found inspiration from his own youth "Being a teenager was a very difficult time in my life, I was very insecure, and had a large amount of social anxiety, thank goodness most of my friends we're extroverts or I don't think I would have ever left my bedroom" He remarks. "The biggest thing for me when writing is the characters, all the characters in the show are inspired by real people and events, I think everybody that watches the show will be able to relate in some form to one if not all of the characters." 

"The thing I want people to take away from this show aside from whatever expectations they bring to it, is to love yourself, love those around you, and appreciate life: We are blessed with two very precious gifts, the first being love and the second being time. Use both wisely, and you might just find life to be quite pleasant!"
