The Uriah Rennie Show? Damn right it is.
From Jamaica to Sheffield to the recently formed Premier League, Uri rises through the ranks as a referee, making it to the highest level of our national game.
But along the way he is confronted with tensions and prejudices, old and new, which emerge as his every move is watched, analysed and commented on.
Your Show is the thrilling story of one man’s pioneering efforts to make it, against the odds, to the very top of his profession and beyond.
