Tutti Frutti

Show Summary

Welcome to the TV.com 'Tutti Frutti’ guide. This award winning six-part, BBC dark comedy-drama of the late 1980s made Robbie Coltrane, of Cracker fame, and Oscar winner Emma Thompson household names. John Byrne MBE wrote the sharp-witted script. With such a pedigree, it is not surprising that it was voted number 82 in the British Film Institute’s top 100 Television programmes of all time. When ageing 60s band The Majestics, the 'Kings of Rock and Roll’, re-group to play a Silver Jubilee tour, things don’t go quite according to plan. Even though their lead singer Jazza McGlone dies in a freak car crash, band manager Eddie Clockery is still determined to re-create the band's halcyon days. The remaining band members recruit Jazza’s apathetic younger brother Danny to take his place. But as they perform in some of Scotland’s less respectable clubs, their personal disagreements and private tragedies seem as if they will force the band to disintegrate, preventing them from recapturing their glory days.moreless
