Storyline

Back in the girl-power heyday of the 90s, a hit single would easily get you 15 minutes of fame. But today you'd be lucky to get 15 seconds. Maxine, played by People Just Do Nothing's Lily Brazier, never made it big with her teenage girl group Variety and now, as a middle-aged failing music manager, she finds herself in crisis, as the one act she looked after decides to drop her. But Maxine has a plan, a come back. This time bigger, bolder and, well - older. Who cares about a hip young girl group anyway?. What the world really needs is the first ever band of mums. And with Maxine at the helm, how can Mum Pop possibly fail? WANNABE is the story of unfinished business, one last shot at fame and struggling to let go of a dream.

not sure about it
7 September 2018 | by AbritathomeSee all my reviews

Lily Brazier plays a similar role to the pushy mother in people just do nothing, this time its herself and not her daughter she is pushing. She seems to have put on two stone for this role and as a result looks like Peter Kay / Geraldine Mcqueen. I'm sure it it was necessary to do so. The premise of her reforming a band seems a bit lame as her delusion is too far fetched to be credible. If this was wound back a little, then the series would have more legs.
