CHAMPION is the first TV project from Candice Carty-Williams, acclaimed author of The Sunday Times bestselling novels Queenie and People Person.
Rap sensation Bosco Champion is home from prison, and ready to dominate the music industry once more. But when his dutiful younger sister Vita’s own talent is discovered by Bosco’s rival, she steps out of her brother's shadow to become a performer in her own right, setting the Champion siblings against one another and tearing apart the whole family in the process.
A love letter to Black British music set in south London, Champion is a celebration of a sound that has long been the beating heart of our culture. Featuring original music written and produced by some of the leading musicians this country has to offer including Ray BLK, Ghetts and more.
Sibling rivalry never sounded so epic.
CHAMPION is a co-production between Balloon Networks and New Pictures.
