Trexx And Flipside

BBC Three sitcom about two wannabe hip hop stars. 6 episodes (1 series) in 2008. Stars Peter Dalton, David Ajala, Rich Fulcher, Ashley Madekwe and others.

Series 1, Episode 6 - Kings Of Da Hood

Brilliance has found spiritual healing and decides it's time the boys invested in some good karma, so sends them to a horrific local school to attempt to turn the pupils around. Flipside finds himself adopted by bad-lad Tiger Tee, and Trexx finds himself attracted to the teacher - but the relationship between the boys seems to suffer from a heap of bad karma.

Further details

Brilliance and Ollie have finally got the boys a gig - at the notorious Saints Alive High school. But the punters are looking for more than just music. One of the teachers - baby-obsessed Miss Olsen - falls for Trexx. And one of the pupils decides that Flipside could be the father figure he craves.

Trexx misses rehearsal time in favour of the attentions of Miss Olsen, whilst Flip finishes up the homework of Tiger Tee - the coolest 11-year-old rhyme-dropper on the streets. He also steers him away from stealing hub-caps for Clinton's new business. But, with so much extra-curricular activity, Trexx and Flip's work-rate has dwindled.

B-ICE's surprise birthday party is looming - and a new set of hub caps will be perfect. Clinton must devise a plan to keep B-ICE from mashing him now that his supply of wheel hubs has dried up.
