Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

KAYA -- which is notable for being MTV's first scripted series -- features the kind of behavior you might expect from a rock band, including drinking, wild partying, and sexual activity. But looking at it in the context of today's young and seemingly out-of-control celebs, Kaya is an honest look at the overwhelming industry pressures placed on young musicians trying to build a successful music career. It also reminds viewers how easy it is for young people to get lost in the trappings of a celebrity lifestyle when they don't have any real mentorship or guidance.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
