Idris Elba Joins African-Set “Brazza” Series

“Luther” and “The Dark Tower” star Idris Elba is set to join “Brazza,” a “Narcos”-style drama set in the criminal underworld of Brazzaville, the capital of Republic of the Congo.

Paul Viragh (“Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll”) is attached to write the series, in which a Congolese man living in Paris is forced to return home after his father dies under suspicious circumstances. Back home he gets drawn into a bloody family feud that threatens the country’s uneasy truce.

Elba, Rola Bauer, Tim Halkin, Jean-Charles Felli and Christophe Tomas will executive produce for Tandem Productions and Save Ferris.
