Sibling rivalry is the big theme of this new comedy drama about brothers Nathan and Josh who go to the same school. Both of them are expert rappers but the twist is that Nathan is a teacher and Josh is a pupil. While Josh dreams of making it in the music business, Nathan is determined to have his say and try to stop his young brother from making the same mistakes he did.

About this programme

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.
