Producer: Workerbee, Green Door Pictures

Genres: Factual

4 x 60’ + 1 x 90’

Available on iPlayer from 17 April 2022 - In this heartfelt and authentic series, Idris Elba will be setting up an experimental fight school in London, which will provide an outlet for young men and women whose circumstances around their upbringing have not given them the opportunities to make the right choices and avoid street violence.

Idris will enlist seven recruits from across the UK, in the hope of teaching these young adults discipline, focus and determination – all key elements in the world of fight training.

The life lessons learned from Fight School will hopefully give them the tools, determination and direction to transform their lives and stay with them long after the immediate challenge.
