British digital channel BBC3 is launching a new reality series that follows young Brits on a vacation in Croatia.

Throughout the two-week jaunt of Croatia 2017: The Brits Are Coming, viewers will meet a variety of characters, including  DJs heading out for their first Croatian DJ set, a young girl on her first foreign holiday, and a soldier who has spent two months living with his parents to save up for the trip.

“BBC3 is committed to experimenting and exploring new ways to tell stories that matter to young audiences,” said BBC3 controller Damian Kavanagh in a statement. “This will be an authentic series of films exploring the real lives of young people today and will build on the innovative approach BBC3 has to documentary storytelling.”

Croatia 2017: The Brits Are Coming is being produced in-house and will air later this year.
