Meet D.W. Waterson, the Canadian DJ tapped by Idris Elba to work on his new show
D.W. Waterson has DJ'd for thousands of people at massive music festivals and screened her award-winning web series That's My DJ all over the world. She's no stranger to a "pinch-me" moment, but her latest one takes the cake.
About a year ago, Waterson got a call from Netflix, asking her to work on a new series called Turn Up Charlie. It tells the story of a down-on-his-luck DJ, played by Idris Elba, who's trying to stage a comeback.
Waterson joined guest host Ali Hassan in the q studio to talk about her experience as a DJ consultant and second unit director on the show. You can watch Turn Up Charlie on Netflix now.
