E4 brings The Midnight Beast (aka Stefan Abingdon, Dru Wakely and Ashley Horne) to TV.

The Midnight Beast are bona fide internet sensations, with thousands of followers and subscribers on facebook, Twitter and YouTube. They became a global phenomenon thanks to their parody of Tik Tok by Ke$ha. The group have so far notched up a staggering 40+ million hits on YouTube.

This sitcom features the band members alongside a host of comedic guest stars, who are depicted as wannabe musicians struggling to make it.

Other characters include Sloman, their perverse neighbour; Chevy, their iniquitous manager; and Zoe, Stef's long-suffering girlfriend.

As well as slipping into wild music videos, the series sees the band having to cope with day-to-day challenges like sharing a dingy East London flat, trying to impress girls when they have no cash, and working out who has to sleep on the kitchen floor.

The series charts their failures and successes as they try to claw and hobble through a sea of bizarre obstacles and unsavoury characters toward pop stardom.

Series 2 (for 2014): This time the band had fallen on hard times and are having to earn their keep in an ex-Bingo Hall run by a fearsome 'EastEnd Granny' and her two grand-daughters. As the Beasts live in hope of one day becoming the venue's house band, their lives will once again be thrown into mayhem and push them to their limits.
