Earlier this year, journalist Dan Hancox published Inner City Pressure: The Story of Grime, a non-fiction book documenting the rise of grime in the UK in the early aughts. Now, it’s been announced that the television rights to the 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 said in a press release. “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.”
