American TV audiences will get a taste of Idris Elba’s British side on BET. Elba stars as John Luther, an English police detective on the hunt for Britain’s most deranged criminals. A drama starring a Black actor is certainly a rare sight on American television. This Golden Globe-winning role has allowed Elba to portray a complex & brilliant character whose dedicated work often compromises his personal relationships & marriage. The Luther marathon airs Saturday 8:30AM/7:30C on BET.
