Season One:
On London's Summerhouse Estate, challenges come in all forms, especially for kids. Thirteen-year-old Ra'Nell (Malcolm Kamulete) finds he has to 'step up and be a man' when his mentally ill mother Lisa (Sharon Duncan Brewster) is suddenly hospitalised. Meanwhile, in the courtyards of Summerhouse Estate a thriving but invisible business is being run by Dushane (Ashley Walters) and his friend Sully (Kane Robinson). Charming, sexy and clever, the 26-year-old Dushane has 'already run out of things to be - except this'. When he attracts the attention of ex-convict and drug dealer Bobby Raikes (Geoff Bell) he seizes an opportunity to be more, to have more - to be Top Boy. Featuring an ensemble cast of brilliant new talent, Top Boy is Ronan Bennett's new four-part drama about young lives lived on the edge and, for the most part, lived out of sight in east London today.

Season Two:
Following on from the huge success of Ronan Bennett's award winning first series we return to the Summerhouse estate a year later. Dushane (Ashley Walters) has finally made it as 'Top Boy', but the police are closing in on him for past crimes committed and he is separated from his old ally, Sully (Kane Robinson). As life on the estate collides with that of organised crime and corporate greed, tensions escalate. Dushane, facing attacks from ruthless gangs and in intensifying police investigation, needs Sully by his side to save their livelihoods - and their lives. Mirroring this is the story of best friends, Ra'Nell (Malcolm Kamulete) and Gem (Giacomo Mancini). Gem finds himself out of his depth and desperate in his attempt to deal drugs and has to turn to Ra'Nell for help. Will Ra'Nell turn his back on Gem or will they both be dragged further into a violent and unpredictable world…
