FILMING for a new young people's mystery drama series Get Even has been taking place in Bolton town centre.

Television crews were in Le Mans Crescent, a popular backdrop with film and TV location managers, this week.

The drama, aimed at 12-to-15-year-olds, is part of a series of new programmes for the age group, unveiled by the BBC to reflect the highs and lows of their everyday lives in the UK today.

Get Even follows four teenage girls at private elite school, Vandermere.

On the surface the girls appear to have nothing in common except for one passion which unites them­— to expose injustice.

They form their own secret society, DGM­— they Don’t Get Mad, they Get Even ­— and play anonymous and corrective pranks to expose bullies.

But when their latest target ends up dead with a ‘DGM’ card in his hands, the girls realise that they’re not as anonymous as they thought­ — a mystery enemy is seeking revenge on them.

Cheryl Taylor, Head of Content for BBC Children’s, said: “It is widely acknowledged that 12-15 year olds can be a difficult audience to reach.

"This new content bridges the small gap between the top end of CBBC and all the amazing content for 16-34s on BBC Three. We are offering a small but carefully chosen slate of programmes on BBC iPlayer which reflect 12-15s specifically and which adds to the broad appeal content they already love elsewhere on the BBC like Strictly, Would I Lie to You and The Apprentice.”
