The third season of Top Boy premiered in Hackney, London last night, and the crime drama's executive producer Drake was on hand for a quick interview with HeyUGuys.
Top Boy premiered in 2011 and ran for two seasons before it was canceled in 2013. Drake, a big fan of the show, successfully lobbied Netflix to bring it back. "I became really attached to the characters," He said. "There's a lot of parallels between Toronto and London. It reminded me of people I grew up with and guys that I know. I really just felt super connected right away, but then it disappeared on me."
Drake also expressed enthusiasm for working with cast members who are also stars of British music, such as Kano, Little Simz, Dave, and more. "These are the type of things that really get to put on display how talented these people are."
Watch the full interview above. Top Boy premieres September 13.
