Idris Elba set to star and executive produce “Turn Up Charlie”, a new Netflix series

Following his feature film debut, "Yardie"

Idris Elba is set to star in and executive produce his second TV series following the release of “In The Long Run”, which was released in March and based loosely on his life growing up in his family. The new show, titled “Turn Up Charlie” is a Netflix series based loosely on his life as a DJ.

“Turn Up Charlie” is about Charlie, played by Idris Elba, a struggling DJ who gets more responsibilities after accepting a job as the nanny to his famous best friend’s problem-child daughter. No other actors have been announced yet, but the show is set to begin production at this May in the U.K.

“Turn Up Charlie” is written by Georgia Lester—who also gets executive producer credits—along with Laura Neal, Femi Oyeniran and Victoria Asare-Archer. And is to be co-produced by Brown Eyed Boy Productions and Green Door Pictures
