The Avenue title card (Season 3)
nue (commonly referred to as TA) is a Writer's Express serial drama created in December 2011 by Ross, a co-Executive Producer and co-Writer alongside colleagues Lem - who joined the project in September 2013 - and Noxy, who joined in May 2014. Lem's first material debuted in Episode 53/1.53, whilst Noxy's made their first appearance in Episode 108/3.8


The Avenue follows the lives of those who reside in and around Catford Grove, a fictional area of SE London. To date, there have been two successful seasons of The Avenue, with the third currently underway. Season 1 ran from 19th December 2013 (Episode 1/1.1) - Tueday 25th December/Christmas Day 2014 (Episode 73/1.73), whilst the shorter but more acclaimed Season 2 ran from 9th February 2015 (Episode 74/2.1) - 19th July 2015 (Episode 100/2.27).
