'Turn Up Charlie,' Starring Idris Elba, Canceled at Netflix
Turn Up Charlie's set at Netflix has ended.
The streamer has opted to cancel the comedy starring and created by Idris Elba after a single season. The series debuted in March 2019 to middling reviews (it currently has a 53 percent score among critics on Rotten Tomatoes).
Picked up to series in April 2018, the comedy revolved around Charlie (Elba), 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. Turn Up Charlie was a co-production between Reich's London-based Brown Eyed Boy Productions and Elba's Green Door Pictures.
