Dubplate Drama gets second series

In Media Guardian, Kate Bulkley reports on the recommissioning of DubPlate Drama (written and directed by Luke Hyams) by Channel 4.
The second series, set against a soundtrack of street music called grime and dubstep - a hybrid of step, hip-hop and drum'n'bass - continues with the theme of stories from the streets, which involve young, predominantly black, kids living and breathing the London music scene, and their battles with the drug culture that surrounds them. It is innovative because the characters use the language of urban rap, the actors are not professionals and the storyline denouements are decided by the audience.
