More on Prime Video's Jungle 

Locations for Jungle are in and around London where the drama is set, including many seens using the skyscarper background on Canary Wharf. Jungle is produced by Nothing Lost. The Creators and Executive Producers are Junior Okoli and Chas Appeti. 

Junior says: "Jungle has been a memorable experience bringing it to fruition. Amazon has been really brave in its approach. When we first came to them with the concept it was kind of a hard idea to sell them as it hadn't been done before. But they invested in us and hard the courage to believe in what we were doing. We had freedom in creativity to express ourselves."
