The 4 O'Clock Club comes to CBBC

Oscar Lloyd, Doc Brown, Khalil Madovi, Tom Rolinson
Back in March 2011, Screenterrier posted the casting call for the lead characters in a new BBC comedy drama 4 O'Clock Club about a troublesome 13 year-old who wants to become a rap superstar.

Filmed in Manchester, the 13 episode series is now ready to hit our screens, with the first episode on Friday 13th January 2012 at 5:30pm on the CBBC channel.


Written by and starring rapper/comedian Doc Brown as Nathan Carter, the young cast includes:


Newcomer Khalil Madovi as Josh Carter, who at 13 years old, is master of all he surveys - particularly his school, the run-down Elmsbury High. His art of manipulating everyone and everything on school grounds is second only to his desire to become a rap superstar.

14 year old Tom Rolinson (represented by Scream Management) from Blackpool plays Ash, Josh's best friend. Tom had a small role in in Sheridan Smith's Little Cracker.

14 year old Oscar Lloyd (represented by Mark Jermin Management) from Seaford, plays Ryan. Oscar is a member of The Theatre Workshop in Brighton and has previously appeared in Emmerdale, an episode of Doctor Who and Lark Rise to Candleford. He will also be seen in the up-coming BBC drama series One Night.


15 year old Alana Thornton (represented by Amber Personal Management) from Manchester plays school trouble-maker Molly.

Rap and comedy combine to tell a tale of sibling rivalry. Rookie teacher Nathan Carter starts his first day back at Elmsbury High School where he was once - well - not the best kid in the class. Nathan is on a mission. He wants to connect with all the kids who have problems and who he thinks he understands because he used to be one of them. He takes charge of the euphemistically-named 4 O'Clock Club. It's really the detention class, and to his surprise he discovers that the king of the club is his 13-year-old brother, Josh. Josh is in denial that this uncool, elbow-patched, fresh-faced teacher is his brother. He has told all the other 4 O'Clock Clubbers that his brother, Natty C, is a famous rapper.

Check out the first episode of 4 O'Clock Club after Tracy Beaker Returns on Friday 13th January 2012 at 5:30pm on the CBBC channel.
