The first trailer has been released for Turn Up Charlie, starring Idris Elba.

The Netflix comedy series follows a down-and-out DJ who tries to rebuild his fledgling music career, while becoming a nanny for his famous best-friend's daughter.

The cast includes Idris Elba as titular character Charlie, Frankie Hervey as Gabby and Guz Khan as Del.

The role won't be a huge stretch for Elba, who DJs and produces when he's not busy acting and directing.

The Wire star's also played a few decent gigs too, such as Glastonbury Festival... oh and Prince Harry's wedding to Megan Markle last year!

Netflix's Turn Up Charlie is set for release on 15 March 2019
