A comedy pilot following Jordan and his friends Ryan and Talia on a London estate. Alarmed by the detrimental effect smart phones are having on those around them, they launch an initiative 'Swiped', which aims to make people more present...by stealing their phones on mopeds. This pilot parodies real crime documentaries whilst simultaneously shining a comedic light on a current and controversial subject matter.
