Prime Video has dropped the first trailer for the UK original series Jungle, a scripted project on the country’s rap and drill music scene.
The first teaser for the six-episode series was unveiled during the streamer’s Television Critics Association panel. The project is from duo Nothing Lost, which consists of Junior Okoli and Chas Appeti. It will premiere on Sept. 30.
Here’s the description:
Jungle follows the connected lives of several strangers, each facing their own struggle, viewed through the prism of UK rap and drill music, and gives a perspective on an often-unseen world. Frequently misunderstood, it’s a world where one law governs everything: only the strongest will survive. As the strangers’ worlds begin to unravel around them, they come to the realization that every action, no matter how small, has a consequence. Portraying the city through compelling visuals whilst detailing the many perils of day-to-day life in inner city London, Jungle ultimately seeks to convey a bigger message about the true value of life.
Per Prime Video, “the series will be told through a unique blend of music and dialogue, working alongside creatively ambitious cinematography and design to create a tilted, timeless version of today’s London.”
Jungle stars Ezra Elliott as Gogo and RA as Slim. The cast also includes M24 as 6ix, J Fado as Chapo, K Koke as Stacks, Jaykae as Willow, IAMDDB as Mia, Seyi Andes-Pelumi as Danial, and AMARIA BB as Bianca.
It also features over 30 of the UK’s biggest drill and rap artists including Tinie Tempah, Big Narstie, Unknown T, Jordan McCann, Double Lz, and Bando Kay.
