The Brit List: Summer of London – Television

It seems as if there’s been a British explosion on TV this summer across the channels but according to Luther star Idris Elba the Brits have been here all along.

BBC America’s Asha Leo, host of The Brit List, caught up with Elba and he summed it up saying, “It’s been going on for a long time. I just think it’s the concentration of a bunch of English actors all coming at the same time. I think it’s a good thing, I’m proud of it.”

As part of the Summer of London celebration, we’re highlighting the bumper crop of stars who’ll make their way to your tellies in the next few months. Look out for some new programs as well as some returning favorites. (And be sure to catch Asha (@ashaleo), Tuesday, June 19 at 10/9c, as she counts down the Coolest of Cool on The Brit List.)
