It follows the fortunes of protagonist Paul (Iain De Caestecker, the Little Vampire) Abandoned by his father, undergoing therapy and detested by his twin sister Anna (Lily Loveless). He and his best friend Mac (Daniel Kaluuya) are the school geeks but it is their odd quirkiness that actually carries the series, in its early part.

Whilst the filmmakers may not have been aiming for it, they did create something that I would say is vampire genre. It was also a good watch thanks, as much as anything, to the performances of Daniel Kaluuya and Iain De Caestecker. The imdb page is here.
