Creative Idea Development
The BBC are always looking for interesting ideas around music. We pitched another episode in the Grime Mums series (with the first being aired in 2013). The genre has continued to grow since that time so we felt it appropriate to revisit this format.
The treatment used in this programme focused mainly on Novelist, Lioness and Coco and their Mums, discussing their respective careers. Using a mix of newly sourced material and archive, along with music, this story takes a light-hearted look at the grime scene.
