Sky Studios has announced its latest in-house production Blocco 181 (working title). The new Sky original project will be developed with the multi-platinum musician and rapper Salmo and will be the first television project for the Italian rap artist.
Salmo will serve as creative and music producer of Blocco 181 and will also star in the series. The creative hub Red Joint Film – led by partners Paolo Vari and David Fischer – is collaborating with Sky Studios to develop the project.
As shown by the teaser released today, Blocco 181 will be set in the multi-ethnic communities on the outskirts of Milan, and will revolve around themes of love, generational conflicts, female emancipation and, above all, power struggles.
As a pioneer of Italian rap music, Salmo has played some of Europe’s most prestigious music festivals and venues. Last year, his sold-out “Playlist Tour 2019″ saw him perform to over 220,000 people in Italy.
