As well as being entertaining, these dramas will reflect real issues, passions and stories, which touch the lives of Asian communities in Britain."

James Peries, Producer, BBC Radio Drama, adds: "Reality Check starts in the pop culture of today's reality TV and then reveals deeper themes around identity, and some darker plot twists – ultimately becoming an intimate family story. Other plays in the strand will begin with a familiar touchstone, but then take the audience on an imaginative journey – telling a complete story in 30 minutes. Comedies, mysteries, drama, and musicals are all in preparation."
