Michaela Coel recently shared to fans that a season 3 of Chewing Gum wasn’t in her immediate plans. At the time it was unclear to what she was working on but fans may be happy to hear she won’t be straying too far from Netflix. It has now been revealed that Netflix has picked up Coel’s musical ‘Been So Long’. The deal first reported by Screen Daily, was for a few million dollars.
Here the films outline:
Bafta-winner Coel, whose TV series Chewing Gum was a hit for Netflix in the US, plays a single mother who, on a rare night on the town, is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger (former Screen Star Of Tomorrow Kene). Directed by Tinge Krishnan (Junkhearts), the film is based on the play by Ché Walker and Arthur Darvill.
