See Albert Square like you've never seen it before - through the eyes of four teenagers - exclusively on the EastEnders website!
With nowhere to live and no one else to turn to they begin to depend on one another for support.
The foursome end up squatting together in 89b George Street and the highs and lows of their shared problems cement their friendship forever.
As part of the BBC's drive to develop and nurture exciting new talent, EastEnders: E20 has been written by 13 new London writers aged between 17 and 22 who attended a summer school where they created and wrote the online drama.
"Developing an online spin-off using Albert Square as a playground has been fantastic," revealed E20 producer Deborah Sathe. "It is so exciting to see these four young Londoners collide with the residents of Walford. The E20 site really celebrates these characters to the max and there will be lots of added extras!"
"I have no idea what to expect with this, and that excites me hugely," added Executive Producer Diederick Santer. "That's what's brilliant about the entire project - we're asking a whole new set of people to come at EastEnders from a fresh angle and to surprise us - and the audience - with what they do."
Another way to involve fresh, new talent in EastEnders: E20 was a competition to create the drama's theme tune. Pairing up with BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Asian Network the BBC offered remixers, DJs and music fans a unique opportunity to become part of EastEnders history by remixing the iconic theme for the E20 title sequence.
Emer Kenny, who plays Zsa Zsa, was one of the thirteen writers. "I'm really thrilled to have been given the opportunity to both write for and act in a show connected with such an iconic drama as EastEnders," she said. "Kids these days use their laptops more than their televisions, so it's really exciting to be a part of a project that's taking drama online and connecting with these viewers."
"These talented writers are creating a whole new Walford, infused with their own experiences of London life," added Diederick Santer. "A fresh perspective on a British classic, EastEnders: E20 will - I hope - delight new audiences and EastEnders diehards alike."
EastEnders: E20 stands alone in terms of its storylines so that it can be enjoyed by viewers unfamiliar with EastEnders, but there will be crossover treats for regular fans too - both in the online series and the BBC One programme. Expect to see, Zsa Zsa, Fat Boy, Leon and Mercy bump into some familiar faces from The Square as the E20 story cross through into the main show.
Between E20's launch on 8 January 2010 and the time of writing (25 January 2010), its episodes and supporting content have received 1.7 million views across the EastEnders website and BBC iPlayer - figures that will continue to grow.
"I'm knocked out by these figures!" revealed Diederick Santer. "For our little side project, something that started life as an experiment, to go so big is very exciting. I'm delighted in particular that the 13 young London writers who wrote the series have reached such an audience with their first professional work."
