Idris Elba is in the running to be the next James Bond (the odds are currently 4-1). But before Elba pursues international intrigue, he must take on the domesticity of a ‘manny.’
In Turn Up Charlie, an eight-episode British comedy series debuting this Friday, March 15, on Netflix, Elba is the title character: a struggling DJ and bachelor who may finally have a chance at success – except that he agrees to become a male nanny to his best friend’s wayward daughter, Gabby (Frankie Hervey).
The cast also includes Piper Perabo and JJ Field.
Elba co-created Turn Up Charlie with Gary Reich and is an executive producer. The series is co-produced by Reich’s Brown Eyed Boy Productions and Elba’s Green Door Pictures.
