Award-winning director Gurinder Chadha known for Bend it Like Beckham is bringing a new reality TV show to Sky.
Desi Rascals airs from 20 January and is the first real-life drama series chronicling the lives of a multi-generational cast within the British-Asian community.
The series will be filmed in West London in suburbs such as Southall, Harrow and Gerrards Cross and shot just days before transmission.

Gurinder Chadha, CEO Bend It TV said, "I've been wanting for a long time to create a show which allowed me to show the British Asian community in a truly three-dimensional way, exploring the relationships between generations and what it means to be British and Asian as values become fluid. 
“I am pumped that we'll get to see a show from where I grew up with people talking about their world and lives in their own words - I could never write dialogue as rich as this!"
It will be shown twice a week at 8pm on Sky Living, with each episode directly influenced by how the characters and audience react to what's just happened.
Antonia Hurford-Jones, Director, Sky Living said: "I am so excited to be bringing our customers a genuinely authentic and warm approach to the non-scripted drama genre with Desi Rascals. 
“It has exactly the tone and sensibilities we look for in a Living show and I loved the idea from the minute I heard it. I am so excited to be working with the supremely talented Gurinder and Tony, telling the stories of a charming, smart, funny and previously untapped cast of characters."
Tony Wood, CEO, Buccaneer Media said:"Having been at the start of the British structured reality boom, it's great to be back. Desi Rascals moves the genre on and brings the massive tale of young British Asians to a whole new audience. 
“I'm thrilled to be working with Sky Living and Gurinder; this is a brilliant opportunity."
