Luther’s Idris Elba will star as a struggling DJ in a brand-new Netflix comedy series called Turn Up Charlie.
Elba is, of course, a successful DJ himself (seriously, he’s released an EP, played Glastonbury, and once opened for Madonna). But he’ll be dialling back his musical skills to play Charlie, an eternal bachelor who is given a final chance at success. But the plan involves becoming a nanny to his famous friend’s difficult daughter.
Netflix has ordered an eight-episode first season of the half-hour comedy, with production set to begin in May, according to Variety. Turn Up Charlie is co-created by TV producer Gary Reich and Elba himself.
