In September 2017, Netflix acquired rights to ‘Been So Long‘, a new musical starring Michaela Coel and British-Nigerian Arinze Kene. The movie was bought over after it showcased at Cannes Film Festival.
The British Blacklist reports that this is the largest acquisition of a UK film by Netflix. Been So Long is a modern day love story set on the streets of Camden, London, set against a soundtrack boasting a diverse mix of RnB, Nu Soul, UK dance and cinematic orchestration, featuring music from up and coming guest producers.
The Musical is set to premiere on the 26th of October 2018.
