Binge Guide: The British Binge-cation
July 28, 2020
Need to get away? Pack up the remote and your finest pair of sweats. It’s time to take a trip on Hulu’s British Binge-cation; a week-long event on the telly, where we’ll premiere five new, and uniquely British shows. Now that’s bloody brilliant.

Jamie Oliver shares easy-to-follow recipes, ingredient swaps and tips to inspire people staying at home.
TUESDAY, JULY 28
Written, co-directed, executive produced and starring O-T Fagbenle (Black Widow, The Handmaid’s Tale), Maxxx centers around a formerly famous boyband star who tries to make his music comeback and prove to the world that he isn’t a washed-up, old has-been. To get his career back on track Maxxx tries to convince his former manager Don Wild, played by Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU, The Handmaid’s Tale) to take him back but he has other ideas and recruits the help of wannabe manager Tamzin, played by Pippa Bennett-Warner (Harlots).

Coming-of-age story about 16-year-old Bethan, who deals with the comical but painfully real anxieties and insecurities of teenage life, along with the stark reality of a home life that is far removed from what she projects to her friends.

FRIDAY, JULY 31
Following the exploits of Vinnie (Joseph Gilgun, Preacher), a Lancashire lad with bipolar disorder, and Dylan, his razor-smart best mate. Inseparable and utterly co-dependant, these boys have hardly spent a day apart since birth.

Brassic was co-created by Gilgun and Daniel Brocklehurst (Shameless, The Stranger, Safe).
