That is a strange way to format the data. You have each parameter in a separate dictionary. I guess you want a single dict:

data = {
         'client_id': 'xxx',
         'client_secret': 'xxx',
         'grant_type': 'authorization_code',
         'redirect_uri' : 'xxx',
         'code': xxx

Also, you specify the content type as form-encoded, but you then serialize the actual data as JSON. Don’t do that.

r = requests.post(url, data=data, headers=headers)
