Dalston Superstars #Exposed

Part One of the story behind the HOTTEST reality show of 2011.

Dalston Superstars #Exposed is the untold story of the web series that changed everything. Back in 2011, Dalston Superstars was launched on an unsuspecting internet, clocking up a record three million Facebook likes.

At first glance the show appeared to be just another dramality show in the vein of TOWIE or Jersey Shore, but, on closer inspection, was Dalston Superstars more than that?

Was it in fact a searing satire, not only of reality television, but also of the mindless young hipsters who populate East London's streets? Critics have been divided. While some described it as 'throw away twaddle of the worst kind"  others compared it to 'Jonathan Swift doing acid with Chris Morris at an Ali G concert'. One even called it 'comedy's Blair Witch Project'. So, who was right? How much of it was a joke and how much of it was excruciating reality?

Dalston Superstars #Exposed meets the makers, the stars, the critics and the celebrity fans to find out.
