MTV is heading deep into the South Wales Valleys to find a group of young people from areas such as Tonyrefail and Tonypandy to feature in its next non-scripted show. Plucked from the tranquillity of Valley life, the cast will be given the opportunity to leave their hamlet towns and change their lives in the city of Cardiff. Over a 6 week period, audiences will watch as the youngsters balance new job opportunities in a brand new city. However, despite their new lifestyles, ‘home' is never far away as the cast will return to The Valleys throughout the series to visit their families and home towns – a stark contrast between the lives they've left behind and the new lives they are beginning.
Runtime: 60 minutes

The South Wales Valleys (Welsh: Cymoedd De Cymru) are a group of industrialised valleys in South Wales. Most of the valleys run north–south, roughly parallel to each other. Commonly referred to as “The Valleys” (Welsh: Y Cymoedd), they stretch from eastern Carmarthenshire to western Monmouthshire; to the edge of the pastoral country of the Vale of Glamorgan and the coastal plain near the cities of Swansea, Cardiff, and Newport.

The A470 from Cardiff is, as far as its junction with the A465 Heads of the Valleys road, a dual-carriageway providing direct access to Taff's Well, Pontypridd, Abercynon and Merthyr Tydfil. It links with the A4059 from Abercynon, Aberdare and Hirwaun; the A472 from Ystrad Mynach and Pontypool, and the A4054 from Quakers Yard. The First Minister has repeated on a number of occasions the promise that the dualling of the A465 will be complete by 2020.
