WATCH: Idris Elba Is A Struggling DJ-Turned-Nanny In The Trailer For His New Netflix Series, 'Turn Up Charlie'

Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Idris Elba’s Turn Up Charlie, which premieres in March.

Elba will star in the titular role as a struggling DJ and eternal bachelor who is given a final chance at success when he reluctantly becomes a manny to his famous best friend’s problem-child daughter.

Frankie Hervey, Piper Perabo, and Guz Khan are among his co-stars.

For those unfamiliar, Elba moonlights as a DJ under the pseudonyms DJ Big Driis and Big Driis the Londoner. He has been DJing in nightclubs since he was 19 years old. The London-bred star got his start as a DJ in 1986 when he helped out with his uncle’s wedding DJ business.

Elba is executive producing with Gary Reich and Tristram Shapeero. Martin Joyce and Ana Garanito are co-executive producers, with Georgia Lester serving as a writer and supervising producer. Other writers are Laura Neal, Femi Oyeniran and Victoria Asare-Archer. Shapeero and Matt Lipsey are directing, and Gill Isles is a producer.
