Written and executive produced by Mehar Sethi (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), the untitled project centers on a local pirate radio station and its hosts.

It features four main actors, Allan Mustafa, Steve Stamp, Asim Chaudhry and Hugo Chegwin, who have also formed a musical act that tours in character as “Kurupt FM”.
Mustafa, Stamp, Chaudhry and Chegin will executive produce the Amazon project. Chris Storer and Ash Atalla will executive produce for Roughcut TV.
Storer is repped by UTA, Kaplan Perrone and Paul Hastings. Sethi is repped by UTA and Morris Yorn.
