After two decades, Tutti Frutti set for triumphant return

An article about the future of Scottish TV mentioned this 1987 classic series. (This article was published in 2007.  )

TUTTI Frutti, the classic black comedy starring Robbie Coltrane and Emma Thompson, is set to return to British TV screens for the first time in 20 years.

Tutti Frutti told the story of a fictional Scottish rock’n’roll group, the Majestics, and their calamitous last tour.

It brought together an extraordinary list of talent. Byrne recommended a little known actor, Robbie Coltrane, to play the lead singer Danny McGlone, who is enlisted by the band after his brother Big Jazza dies.

Another unknown, actress Emma Thompson, played opposite him as Suzy Kettles, while the actor and director Richard Wilson was also in the original cast.
