Growing Up has the following official Disney description:
Growing Up is a pioneering hybrid docu-series that covers the trials, successes, and complexity of adolescence through 10 captivating coming-of-age experiences. The series follows one cast individual, ages 18–22, as they express their tale using narrative, experimental, and documentary filmmaking. They reflect a vast spectrum of lived experiences, providing audiences with emotionally resonant narratives that provide an interesting look at adolescence and the various societal, familial, and personal difficulties that young people confront on their path to self-discovery and acceptance. Each 30-minute episode focuses on one young person, or “hero,” and their growing-up experience. Each episode is anchored by a highly intimate conversation in which our heroes take us on a journey through their childhood and adolescence. In addition to these conversations, imaginative cinematic reenactments help bring their important turning events to life.
