4:25pm – Friday, August 12 on ABC3
Friday,12 August 2011 Indie (Melissa Shankar) is like any 13 year old, trying to fit in at high school – but it’s not easy when her traditional South-Asian parents are fond of old-school values. Their idea of a proper school-dance outfit is a ruffled plaid dress, and Saturdays are reserved for remedial Hindi.
While the rest of her friends are enjoying their freedom, Indie is trying to juggle her school and home life, and she is trying to make the situation work in her own unique way.
Ep 1 – How To Make Your Rep – Friday, August 12 at 4.25pm Starting eighth grade, Indie is determined to have a cool rep. And though her parents made her spend the summer studying Mandarin in her basement, she hides her boring vacation by wearing a camp t-shirt to the first day of school so everyone will assume she did something cool and fun.
However, after she embellishes her camp experiences in class, the Outdoors Club is so impressed they ask her to lead their weekend expedition into the scary wilderness. Unprepared for life in the wild and unhindered by her usually strict parents, Indie’s caught between a rock and an uncool place. Could Mandarin somehow save the day, her life and her rep.
Meanwhile, Marlon tries to up his rep too, by getting his own entourage… with mixed results.
