MTV – Mondays from 5 September, 9.30pm

This series takes an irreverent look at the conflict, chaos and humour that defines teenage life through the eyes of 15-year-old Jenna Hamilton, played by Ashley Rickards (Fly Away, One Tree Hill), whose life begins to change when a simple accident becomes an epic misunderstanding and is blown way out of proportion. Narrated in the first-person voice of Jenna’s blog posts, Awkward captures the humor within the struggles and experiences everyone can relate to from their formative years. The series picks up in the aftermath of the accident as she must deal with a new not-so-fun stigma, while at the same time managing the other daily drama that comes with being a teenager.

From a secret relationship with a popular guy, to being undermined by a mean girl, and parents who just don’t get it-Jenna’s misfortune will eventually serve as the catalyst for amazing change, but it’s not without some missteps and mishaps along the way. The show will also feature Beau Mirchoff (Desperate Housewives) as Matty, Jenna’s love interest; Molly Tarlov (Huge, iCarly) as Sadie, Jenna’s nemesis; Jillian Rose Reed (Weeds) as Tamara and Jessica Lu (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Law & Order: Los Angeles) as Ming, Jenna’s two best friends; Brett Davern (Junk, Triple Dog) as Jake, the good natured popular kid; Nikki DeLoach (North Shore, Love and Other Drugs) as Jenna’s mom Lacey; and Desi Lydic (Traffic Light, Two and a Half Men) as Valerie, the school’s guidance counsellor.
