Netflix and Damien Chazelle are teaming up for The Eddy!
Netflix is joining forces with Damien Chazelle, the Oscar-winning director of “La La Land,” for “The Eddy,” a Paris-set musical drama series which will mark Chazelle’s first venture into TV.
Chazelle will direct two episodes of the series, on top of exec-producing. The eight-episode show comes from IMG and will premiere exclusively on Netflix for subscribers around the world.
A major coup for Netflix, “The Eddy” marks the streaming giant’s first collaboration with Chazelle, who joins a string of big-name directors, including the Coen Brothers, Martin Scorsese, Ava DuVernay, David Fincher and Shonda Rhimes, who have been lured to work with Netflix.
Set in contemporary multicultural Paris, “The Eddy” revolves around a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them. The series will be shot in France, and will feature dialogue in French, English and Arabic.
