Washington Heights Launches On MTV!
Watch the first episode on MTV.co.uk before it premieres on TV...
Washington Heights tells the story of a group of urban twenty-somethings chasing their dream careers while growing up in a deprived part of New York.
The show follows the lives of nine best friends living in the Washington Heights area of the city and shows the hopes and struggles of a tight knit group of young New Yorkers, and the sacrifices they have to make while trying to make their dreams a reality.
With aspirations of breaking into everything from baseball to fashion, the young inner-city hopefuls are reminded on a day-to-day basis that the road to success isn't without its set-backs and obstacles.
Cast member JP Perez, a wannabe rapper on the show has been living a similar off-screen reality, trying to make it in the Hip-Hop world under the name Audubon.
In an interview with Latino entertainment site, Zona De Sabor, he said he wanted his music to be "timeless" and "transcend past everyday trends and what's popular", and spoke of how proud he was of his Latino heritage and the inner strength it gave him.
Throughout the show the cast discover that in spite of their different goals, their paths cross and their stories intertwine, as they all work towards a common ambition, making it.
Washington Heights premieres in the UK for the first time on Tuesday July 23 on MTV at 9pm, but you can catch the first episode exclusively online at MTV.co.uk here right now!
