Channel 4 Sets October UK Premiere Date For Comedy ‘MAXXX’ Starring O-T Fagbenle & Jourdan Dunn
Let’s try this again, shall we! Channel 4 has set an October UK premiere date for ‘MAXXX‘, a new comedy starring O-T Fagbenle as a former boyband star trying to make his musical come back in a bid to win back his famous supermodel ex-girlfriend. The series was originally launched on E4 in April at the beginning of the pandemic but was pulled to air at a later date (which has now arrived!)
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?
‘Maxxx’ is produced by Luti Media a ground-breaking production company known for creating some of the most viewed content on the internet with iconic music videos for the likes of Drake, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Rita Ora, and campaigns for leading brands including Adidas, BMW, and Beats By Dre. Luti Media was founded by O-T Fagbenle’s younger brother Luti, and ‘Maxxx’ will be their debut comedy TV series. The series is directed by Nick Collett & O-T Fagbenle, and produced by Ali Carron.
‘MAXXX‘ premieres Thursday, 29th October 2020 at 10pm on Channel 4. The whole series is available to stream or download for free on All 4 following the transmission of the first episode.
