Hit American TV show The Rap Game is set to be re-made in the UK as The Grime Game.
Similarly to the U.S. version, the show will follow the lives of several MCs who will compete for a record deal. However, instead of focusing on rap artists, the UK version will be centred around grime artists.
Tom O’Brien, the Director of Development for the production company working on The Grime Show, said “Grime is one of the UK’s most important – and also lucrative – musical movements. Now is a great time to celebrate it, by profiling the next generation of hungry performers.”
According to reports, a well-established and currently un-named grime artist has also helped set up the forthcoming TV show.
As the show is currently in the early stages of planning, there is not a set date for when The Grime Show will first air on TV.
