Press Clippings

The BBC teen strand's new sitcom continues. Channelling Larry Sanders and The Muppet Show, here a hapless team of producers, runners and presenters have to bring fictional teen music and chat show Popatron to our screens. Don't expect a show of the calibre of those two but it's an interesting meta-fictional enterprise. Playing themselves in this second episode are Ugly Betty's Michael Urie and grime-pop star Tinchy Stryder.
