MC Grindah, DJ Beats and the rest of the Kurupt FM crew return for the fifth and final series of award-winning mockumentary series People Just Do Nothing.

MC Grindah and his Kurupt FM mates return for the fifth and final series of award-winning comedy People Just Do Nothing.

When we catch up with the pirate radio rappers, they prove to be just as useless as ever…

DJ Steves is just out of jail, but as all radio equipment has been seized, the boys’ plans to make Kurupt FM go global are suffering.

The lads desperately try to raise cash by selling off their naff bits and bobs at a car boot sale to replace their seized equipment with the help of Chabuddy G, who has a new money-making scheme.

Unfortunately, the boys’ money-making efforts only end in heated arguments and mayhem.

Meanwhile, there’s bad news for newlyweds Miche and Grindah when they discover they are being forced to move from their flat in Brentford to live on the other side of London in Essex. Can someone pull strings at the council?

The spoof documentary series won the award for the Best Scripted Comedy at the British Academy Television Awards earlier this year – so as it bows out, let’s hope this series earns a few more gongs for the show’s creators Asim Chaudhry (Chabuddy G), Hugo Chegwin (DJ Beats), Steve Stamp (Steves) and Allan Mustafa (MC Grindah).
