A BBC spokeswoman explained: “En route they pluck a girl band from the obscurity of Superb’uns cake shop, get sued by Eminem, get lost in the Pennines – where they find the new Oasis – and get involved in a scam involving a Macedonian prostitute called Zora who has a revolutionary way of making shish kebabs.”
Meanwhile BBC‘s head of comedy Kenton Allen told The Guardian: “‘Massive’ combines Ralf Little and Johnny Vegas with a terrific supporting cast and Damian Lanigan‘s vivid scripts about rock’n’roll lifestyles on a Primark budget. It’s shaping up to be a unique comedy treat for this autumn on BBC3.”
