The show is possibly the greatest aversion of a DawsonCasting as, in the same style as ''BugsyMalone'', all the characters are adults but are played by a group of 11-to-15-year-olds. The show was also given a guidance warning (18+) and had to be shown after the watershed, though it was partially written by the entirely under-age cast.
