Murder and intrigue in new BBC iPlayer teen drama Get Even
They form their own secret society, DGM - they Don’t Get Mad, they Get Even - playing anonymous pranks to expose bullies.
But when their latest target, Ronny, ends up dead with a DGM card in his hands, the girls realise that they’re not as anonymous as they thought - someone now wants revenge.
Bannerman School might look beautiful from the outside, but there’s something corrupt under the surface. Competition is encouraged to the point of cruelty, bullying is common and accepted by the establishment; the way the teachers see it, if you can’t take it you’re not a good fit for the school.
The four girls set out to deliver justice for those who have been wronged at the school, but the tables are turned against them.
DGM find themselves framed for a crime they didn’t commit. Their only option is to discover who the true murderer is, why they were framed, and clear their name once and for all.
It’s also a time of first love, exams and identity crisis and for Kitty, Margot, Bree and Olivia. The themes of love and relationships, trust, true friendship, empowerment, teen identity and independence weave addictively throughout the series. Even when they are focused on grades or guys, jeopardy is never far away.
