A stellar all-star cast joins creator, writer, and actor O-T Fagbenle in his new Channel 4 comedy series Maxxx.
Maxxx centres around a former famous boyband star played by O-T Fagbenle (Black Widow, The Handmaid’s Tale, NW, Looking) who has plans to make a music comeback in a bid to win back his famous supermodel ex-girlfriend Jourdan Dunn. He also wants to prove to the world that he isn’t a washed-up has-been.
To get his career back on track Maxxx enlists the help of his cousin-slash-superfan-slash-stalker Rose (Helen Monks – Raised by Wolves, Upstart Crow), and tries to convince his former manager Don Wild (Christopher Meloni – Happy!, The Handmaid’s Tale, Law & Order, Oz) to take him back. However, Don has other ideas and recruits the help of wannabe manager Tamzin (Pippa Bennett-Warner – Gangs of London, MotherFatherSon, Harlots). Maxxx is also haunted by Lucky played by Javone Prince (Phone Shop, The Javone Prince Show) who is Maxxx’s former bandmate.
O-T Fagbenle, writer, director, and star says: “It’s a dream to write and direct for a cast of extraordinary actors from seasoned pros like Christopher Meloni and Javone Prince to new acting talents like Alan Asaad and Jourdan Dunn. The talent of Helen, Pippa, and a wish list of guest stars and cameos have been a gift to Maxxx, I can’t wait for people to see!”
Maxxx airs on Channel 4 Thursday 29th October, from 10pm, with the boxset available on All4. Find out more here.
