Idris Elba is putting on his producer hat again… this time for a new British comedy/drama TV series centered on the world of wrestling in the 1970s and 1980s, titled Walk Like A Panther.
The new series will star Tom Meighan and Stephen Graham, although Elba’s involvement will strictly be behind the scenes as executive producer, stating “I’ve come on board as an executive producer to take the Panthers to the next level. These boys are like family to me, so it’s an honour.“
Good to see him continue to put himself into positions of power and control by using whatever power he currently has in this cutthroat biz.
Nowadays, it’s not always enough to just wear one hat.
