Noel Clarke and Lionsgate UK are joining forces again to adapt the 2006 hit  film Kidulthood in to a TV series.

Set in West London, Kidulthood centered on the lives of a group of troubled teens. Clarke later wrote and stepped behind the camera to direct follow-up Adulthood which was set six years later and focused on Clarke’s character Sam after he is released from prison.  He also wrote and directed last year’s Brotherhood.

The writer/director said:

“Adapting Kidulthood for television allows fans to watch new characters deal with new problems in the world I created with my team.” The adaptation will stay “very true” to the heart of the film franchise, but refreshes the concept for a new platform and a new catchment audience with a host of new characters and the odd familiar face.

Congratulations Noel.
