Eleven is in development with Sky Studios, Lionsgate and British soul-pop artist Arlo on his debut TV project.

The series follows a young man in East London and the relationship between his working-class background and burgeoning success in the music industry.

David Ikechukwu, known publicly by his stage name Arlo, created the show with writer, director and actor Aki Omoshaybi. Omoshaybi is writing the series.

Lionsgate and Eleven’s involvement was announced in 2021. Lionsgate will handle global distribution on the series, with Eleven producing. Joel Wilson is executive producing, alongside former Lionsgate international acquisitions and co-productions exec Marc Lorber, and Arlo himself.

At the time, Wilson said: “Arlo and Aki are prodigiously talented, insightful people as well as being beautifully in tune when it comes to the story they want to tell together. It has been a real privilege to sit with them and watch this series begin to come to life.”
