Idris Elba Gets Turnt Up In Netflix Comedy Series ‘Turn Up Charlie’

The reigning Sexiest Man Alive is about to drop a beat ya’ll.

Idris Elba as a struggling DJ slash nanny in a comedy. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect. After watching the first trailer, I have to say, it kinda all works.

Before Elba entertains the crowds at Coachella this April, he’ll wow Netflix viewers with his masterful turntable skills in Turn Up Charlie. The comedy series follows a down-and-out DJ (Elba) who plots to rebuild his music career while working as a nanny for his famous best friend’s wild 11 year old daughter. Piper Perabo, JJ Field and Frankie Hervey also star.

The eight-episode first season arrives on Netflix on March 15. Check out the trailer below.
