Earlier this 12 months, journalist Dan Hancox printed Inner City Pressure: The Story of Grime, a non-fiction e-book documenting the rise of grime within the UK within the early aughts. Now, it’s been introduced that the tv rights to the e-book have been picked up by Pulse Films and Paramount Television.
“I think people really recognize that you can’t tell the story of grime without telling the story of the city and society around it,” Hancox stated in a press launch. “And likewise, if you want to understand London, its politics, poverty, riots, gentrification, frustrations, tensions and joys, there’s no better insight into the first two decades of 21st century London than grime.”
