Jobless is a sitcom all about the Adenugas, a British Nigerian middle-class family in Milton Keynes, in particular 16-year-old twin brother and sister Kehinde (Kenny) and Taiwo (Tai).

Tai and Kenny are desperate to make their mark on the world. That’s hard when you live at home with your parents, and even harder when you live in Milton Keynes…

Thara Popoola says: "I'm so excited for the world to meet the Adenuga twins, Tai and Kenny, or as their mum likes to call them 'jobless people'! We've had such a fun time making this, and I couldn't have asked for a better cast, who have brought these characters to life so brilliantly."

Jobless is created and written by Thara Popoola, the producer is Zoë Waterman, the executive producer is Rachel Ablett and the director is Big Red Button. Jobless is a Zeppotron (a Banijay UK company) production for BBC iPlayer and BBC Three. Commissioned for the BBC by Ben Caudell and Navi Lamba.
