Champion is the first TV project for Candice Carty-Williams, author of The Sunday Times bestselling novel Queenie and the new hit novel and Sunday Times Bestselling People Person. The show tells the explosive story of what happens when fame collides with family.
The music-infused Champion tells the explosive story of what happens when fame collides with family. The show follows rap sensation Bosco Champion, who is home from prison, and ready to dominate the music industry. But when his dutiful younger sister Vita’s own talent is discovered by Bosco’s rival, Bulla, 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.
Billed as a love letter to Black British music set in south London, “Champion” features original music written and produced by leading U.K. musicians. Ray BLK serves as music executive alongside grime pioneer and BRIT and Mercury Prize-nominated Ghetts.
