Idris Elba's sitcom 'Turn Up Charlie' axed after one season by Netflix

Netflix have axed Idris Elba's DJ sitcom Turn Up Charlie after just one season, according to reports.

The 47 year-old actor created the show about a has-been DJ trying to turn his career around, in which he plays the title role. 

An insider told The Mirror: “Idris had hoped to get a second season rolling and was even working on new ideas but he couldn't get it to work.”  

Last year Elba shared his ambitions for season two and said: "It’s very ­exciting. I’m involved with the script creation, which is mainly seeding stories.

"There are characters that have their own narrative strands now."
