If you’re a fan of HBO’s “The Wire” or Netflix’s “Narcos,” then you might be interested in the latest official series, “Top Boy,” starring Barry Keoghan and Brian Gleeson. The show is set to air on British television later this year, and it will be based on a UK reality TV show about London’s criminal underworld. The eight-episode first season will be set in Hackney, and it’s being shot entirely on location.
The cast is headed by Irish actor Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk, upcoming Young Yank & Little Wig), while the show’s producer has brought on some Hollywood names to help out. His name is Charlie Covell, and he also serves as a writer for the show. He has previously worked on such shows as “Black Mirror” and “Doctor Who.
Introduction to Top Boy

It tells the story of a middle-class teenager named Matt Murdock, who lives in Hell’s Kitchen with his mother, father, and older sister.

The storyline of Top Boy
In Top Boy, a drug dealer is forced to take care of his younger brother when their parents leave them. They have to move in with their grandparents and start over again.
He begins finding new ways of making money, but as time goes by, he becomes too comfortable with the life that he had before. Bloodshed ensues when the local gang lords challenge him on his territory.
This was a familiar scenario for those who studied the genre of crime and gangster movies, but it was always in the background. In a way, it was like watching The Godfather, but with one minor difference – violence and people were getting killed every other scene. Because I have only recently finished reading the book, I cannot go into high detail as to what happens exactly.
Marvel and Peaky Blinders stars feature in Top Boy’s final season
The British crime drama series Top Boy’s final season airs on BBC One on Tuesday, and its rumored cast includes Marvel and Peaky Blinders star, Charlie Murphy. Richard Price, the creator of the hit TV show, has said that he was inspired by the ’70s era when it comes to filming this final season.
Just as gang warfare is entering its latest phase with a new breed of drug dealers fighting to take over territory. The show comes from Top Boy’s longtime producer and the ’90s crime drama series The Wire’s Paul Giamatti.
The final season of the critically acclaimed TV show will feature Murphy, who is famous for his roles in Marvel’s limited series Luke Cage and Peaky Blinders, respectively. He will be joined by two other British actors as part of the new cast that has been added to Top Boy’s final season. According to a report from Deadline, three more actors have been added to Season 4’s cast.
