U.S. cable network Oxygen will next month debut Brooklyn 11223 (pictured), a reality series set in the Brooklyn, New York neighborhood of Bay Ridge.

Set in the zip code best known as the setting for the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever and the surrounding area, the docu-series promises to give the net’s youth-skewing viewers a “voyeuristic” look into the lives of two childhood friends and the drama and betrayal which is “tearing their circle of friends apart,” according to the network.

The series will premiere on March 26 at 11 p.m. EST and is produced by Ish Entertainment. Michael Hirschorn, Wendy Roth, Ethan Goldman and Lenid Rolov serve as executive producers.
