PREVIEW: MAXXX, Channel 4
Hilariously outrageous comedy series that offers a rude and cringe-inducing peek behind the pop world's curtain.
Former boyband star turned drug-shamed tabloid laughing stock Maxxx (O-T Fagbenle) may be down, but he's not out. He's trying to make a comeback to prove to the world - but mostly to his supermodel ex-girlfriend Jourdan (Jourdan Dunn) - that he's not the massive loser everyone says he is. But with his adopted teenage son Amit (Alan Asaad) in serious need of daddy advice, his cousin/superfan/stalker Rose (Helen Monks) popping up around every corner, and most people assuming he's dead, the journey back to superstardom won't be easy.
In a last-ditch attempt at a comeback, Maxxx tries to rehash things with his old boy band Boytown and pleads for the help of music mogul Don Wild (Christopher Meloni). With wannabe international manager Tamzin (Pippa Bennett-Warner) by his side, can Maxxx rise to the challenge?
The whole series is available to stream or download for free on All 4 following the transmission of the first episode, on Thursday 29 October.
