Take a look at the trailer released for upcoming Netflix series Turn Up Charlie, starring Idris Elba.
The comedy series tells of struggling DJ and eternal bachelor Charlie (Elba), who gets one last chance at cracking the big time when he reluctantly takes on a gig as ‘manny’ to his famous best friend’s problem-child daughter, Gabby (Frankie Hervey).
The trailer is kind of all over the place, but there does seem to be a fun vibe going on. Elba’s good value, and having him playing around with elements from his real-life DJ role should be entertaining. We’ll see.
Elba co-created the series and executive produces alongside co-creator Gary Reich (Vicious) and Tristram Shapeero (Community). Shapeero directs four episodes and Matt Lipsey (Sick Note) directs eight.
Turn Up Charlie, also starring Piper Perabo and JJ Field, hits Netflix on March 15.
