Director Jay Moussa-Mann says:
“Jenny Jennings is a light-hearted yet tender glimpse into the life of any young woman with dreams and hopes and insecurities, seeking her own path whilst trying to find her place in the world. The catch is, in this story, which world does she belong to - earth or the skies?
I wanted to write and direct a series that used emotion and dialogue, where characters evolve, set in the ever growing and changing world of social media.”
