Who wants a superhero with an ASBO?
In Misfits, a gang of five teenage outsiders – party-girl Alisha, hard-as-nails Kelly, one-time sporting hero Curtis, painfully shy nerd Simon and smart-aleck Nathan – get caught in a flash storm while on Community Service and suddenly find themselves saddled with strange superpowers.
Unlike their more conventional counterparts, they don’t swap their mobile phones and ankle tags for capes and tights. Instead, they discover just how tough life can be when you’re all that stands between good and evil. Well, that and your curfew order….
MISFITS is comedy-drama drama which introduces a band of superheroes for the i-pod generation... superheroes with ankle tags and ASBOs. When five teenagers dropouts get caught in a flash storm whilst doing community service, they discover the freak weather has left them with strange powers. Shy loner Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible, tough girl Kelly (Lauren Socha) can hear other people's thoughts, sporty Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) can turn back time, whilst beautiful Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy with just one touch. The only 'misfit' to remain unaffected is cocky Nathan (Robert Sheehan), but his background appears intriguing enough. Now the gang find themselves in the position to carry out some real community service, but are they ready for the challenge?
