People Just Do Nothing

THE SHOW

Welcome to KURUPT FM, ‘the second most popular pirate radio station in West London’. Led by the delusional MC Grindah and his equally hapless sidekick DJ Beats, Kurupt FM are on a mission to go global. Together with the drug-impaired Steves and the technical support of dodgy self-proclaimed ‘entrepreneur’ Chabuddy G, they seek to make their dream of worldwide fame a reality.


People Just Do Nothing is a Bafta-winning mockumentary which is now in its fifth series. Available on BBC iPlayer.

SERIES 5 SYNOPSIS

Following the station being raided and Steves’ arrest, Kurupt FM face even more set-backs when they find out the Brentford blocks are being knocked down and turned into luxury flats. With their future in Brentford uncertain, marital bliss doesn’t last long for Miche and Grindah as a secret grows between them. Beats gets caught in the middle and Chabuddy gets more than he bargained for in his new relationship. Meanwhile the boys try new tactics to stay relevant as the stakes have never been higher for them to make it big, but will Kurupt FM survive the gentrification of Brentford?

SERIES 4 SYNOPSIS

It’s remarkable just how strong the original product remains. It’s as funny, and as tragic, as ever. People Just Do Nothing may have earned its creators awards, critical acclaim and money, but success has not threatened Kurupt FM. THE GUARDIAN
 
BBC3 really has been a marvellous comedy incubator – and People Just Do Nothing may well be its towering achievement. THE INDEPENDENT
