Trexx and Flipside
Greetings from the set of Trexx and Flipside - currently filming up here in Manchester. In case you missed this blog post, it's basically a brand new BBC Three sitcom that features me as Trexx and former Dream Team actor David Ajala as Flipside. The show follows Trexx and Flipside as they try to become the next big thing in HipHop but things don't necessarily go their way especially when their manager Mr Brilliance (played by the comedy genius that is Rich Fulcher) simply hasn't got a clue. Luckily, his assistant Ollie (played by Ashley Madekwe) knows what she's doing and their friend Clinton (played by Marcel McCalla) always tries to help but will their nemesis, the highly successful gangsta emcee B-Ice (played by Tyronne Lewis) and his 'pitbull in a skirt' other half Chinaza (played by Emi Wokama) and his bodyguard Tiny (played by Andrew 'Tiny Iron' Harrison) halt them in their tracks?
You'll be able to see it all when it's on BBC Three in late spring/early summer (one of the big bosses on the show, reckons June or July will be our initial transmission date) but in case you haven't noticed, whenever I can, I've been uploading behind the scenes photos to my flickr account
Monday marks the start of Week 4 of filming and so far we've managed to complete all of our outdoor location scenes which included filming dressed in nothing but long johns (for me) and string vest in boxers (for David) in Manchester's China Town and Deansgate areas. Being that they're just your normal average streets, seeing 2 black dudes walking around in underwear and a camera crew at night can draw a crowd. Big shout to those girls who thought my co-star David was Lemar!
I'll bring you more stuff as I can, and who knows, maybe even some videos will surface... But I didn't tell you that!
