UK-based factual prodco Naked Entertainment has optioned a UK remake of The Rap Game from global media co A+E Networks.

Naked is developing a British version of the Lifetime network format that will focus on the grime genre – instead of rap – showcasing a new generation of talented grime MC’s all competing for a coveted record deal.

The Grime Game (w/t) is shot like a documentary and with no eliminations. Joined by their managers in a residential recording studio, the musicians create their own jams with the hopes of catching the attention of grime’s biggest names.

“With several recent wins under our belt, the formats division continues to broaden the global reach of our IP, and it wouldn’t be possible without stellar production partners such as Naked,”  said Robyn Hurd, VP of content sales for EMEA at A+E Networks, in a statement.

The Rap Game, now in its fifth season in the U.S., features rapper and host Jermaine Dupri coach, test and then ultimately select the winner. The reality series first launched in 2016 and follows five young rappers as they move into a house together and perform each week, competing for a recording contract with Dupri’s So So Def Recordings.
