Crongton is a returning series adapted by Archie Maddocks from the best-selling critically acclaimed series Crongton Knights by Alex Wheatle.

The show chronicles the lives and journeys of a thriving, multicultural community in a fictional, vibrant, motley housing estate aptly named Crongton (like a fictionalised British version of the notorious Compton, US). The series is told through the boisterous and dynamic perspective of our hero Lemar “Liccle Bit” Jackson, and his exuberant group of friends who reside South of the Crongton estate. We chart their adolescent navigation through social politics, peer pressure, and identity as they try to forge a place for themselves in a world full of possibilities yet littered with danger.

Crongton is produced in association with All3Media International. 

Set to be released in 2025.
