Never Have I Ever
As for Never Have I Ever, this is a series where we see teenagers as well as their drama being a part of growing up. As we have already discussed, the focus is thrown at Devi Vishwakumar. The characters all reside in Sherman Oaks, located in Los Angeles, where they study in high school. Devi has been through a lot of trauma after his father passed away due to a sudden cardiac arrest. She was pretty close to her dad, and the emotional tension led her to lose the use of her legs for three months straight. Her freshman year, along with friends Fabiola and Eleanor, went pretty horrible.
Thus, she wants to change their status in society and among her friends. She gets in so much drama the following year when she chases after Paxton, her high school crush and a swimmer at her school. She wants him to become her boyfriend but obviously, that was pretty hard to happen. On the other hand, she also has to deal with studies as well as her nemesis Ben who is as good at studies as her. Tennis player John McEnroe was invited to narrate the series to describe everything that Devi feels. Also, there were other big celebrities as well who also came forth to describe the personal mind of other characters. We saw Andy Samberg doing Ben while Gigi Hadid did Paxton Hall Yoshida.
