In today’s world, there’s a wide range of hot topics that everyone has their own opinion on. From abortion to same sex marriage, a new U.K. set web series plans to provide their own differing views on some of today’s headlines. Via Rep Dat TV, The Balcony is a reality discussion web series that captures the “everyday” conversations of the residents of a vibrant block in south east London. The Balcony plans to explore a wide range of taboo and controversial topics throughout the entire episode with no topic left off limit. The project is essentially a combination of Googlebox & BKChatLDN, both critically acclaimed shows, as well as The Only Way Is Essex, an award winning reality series.
According to their website, Rep Dat TV has been pivotal in creating and promoting a platform for black British culture ever since their re-launch in 2011.

After watching episode one of The Balcony, which focused on celebrity cheating and using Kevin Hart’s recent situation as the prime example, I found myself enjoying the differing opinions of everyone involved. The entire cast provided insightful, interesting, and sometimes insane point of views on whether or not the cheating was to blame on Hart or his wife, as well as whether or not he was set up to cheat. I really enjoyed the fact that the episode started out with three ladies then a few guys joined them and by the end, a whole new group was present to close out the episode. The Balcony stars Tra Ann, Mikee Introna, Charli Certified, Sir 2xBobbi, Dips, LV General, Amanda, Ju Sofia Prata, Solo Kulture, Reaper, Samantha, and Mehmet.
