Trashy Teen Dramas

I really like trashy teen dramas. It's a weakness, like enjoying really terrible chocolate, or candy corn. We know that it's not a worthy indulgence, but we like it!
My latest probably-never-going-to-go-anywhere inspiration: a trashy teen drama set in... Crown Heights.
 Call it "The CH" or "Crown Heights 11213" or something. 
An angry teenage boy is taken in by a warm and loving family in Crown Heights. 
Put him in the basement, give the mom a high school sister for him to flirt with, and let the drama ensue. 
Late-night parties, mikvah scenes, getting kicked out of (and allowed back into?) yeshiva...
I can almost hear the theme song...

bps?

all cool, just leave out the mikveh. Fact is that there's nothing sexual about mikveh (at least for boys). Putting it in your trash for teens will give all sorts of ppl weird ideas.

A slightly more complimentary way of referring to your favored genre: chic lit. (That's what my sisters call it.)

Aaaah! Romance novels! Burn 'em.

no the mikvah scene should be with a very interested fellow yeshiva student...who likes water polo.

the idea was more along the line of gratuitous locker scenes in most high school tv shows.
fakewood - what's bps?
and e. - chic lit and romance novels differ greatly.
