Football is a multi-billion dollar business. The Window is a thriller preoccupied with the elite world that surrounds professional football. Written by James Payne, The Window borrows its title from the term commonly used to describe the brief period during the year where footballers are traded. The series follows Jordan Burdett (Samuel Jordan), a talented 17-year-old player from the North of England, who is set to score a big contract.
