MTV Network’s The N and On Screen Entertainment have produced the first African American dramatic series for teens entitled, Miracle's Boys. The six–part television series was shot entirely on location in Harlem, New York.

Miracle’s Boys is based on the eponymous Coretta Scott King Award winning novel by Jacqueline Woodson. It follows the story of three half African American and half Puerto Rican brothers in Harlem. Ty’ree (20), Charlie (16), and Lafayette (13) are on their own after the untimely deaths of their parents. This captivating, honest and sometimes humorous story begins the day that Charlie comes home after spending a year in juvenile detention. He returns to find Ty’ree in charge of the family. But Ty’ree is barely an adult himself, which they all discover when their first meal together includes cold peas from a can. Lafayette idolizes Charlie and tries to get him involved in his life until he realizes his secret crush has eyes for his brother. The series follows the trio as they are faced with the challenges of raising themselves in the fast pace of Harlem and the drama is fueled by the sites and sounds of this historic neighborhood.
