Damien Chazelle’s Musical Series ‘The Eddy’ Heads To Netflix | TV News
Damien Chazelle is taking his talents to TV, joining the Netflix cult with musical series The Eddy. Set in Paris, the series revolves around “a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them“. It’s oh so very Damien Chazelle.
Chazelle is, of course, the mastermind behind Whiplash (2014) and La La Land (2016), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Director. The Eddy, it seems, falls in between the two movies, music seeming a subject of attraction for the director.
Shockingly, there’s no mention of pal Justin Hurwitz in the project details; Hurwitz has scored each of Chazelle’s films, including La La Land for which he earned two Academy Awards for Best Original Score, and Best Original Song for “City of Stars”. Instead, six time Grammy Award-winning Glen Ballard heads the series’ score.
Jack Thorne – How I Live Now, This is England ’90 – pens the script. Alan Poul – Six Feet Under, Candyman – executive produces.
The series will consist of eight episodes, two of which will be directed by Chazelle, who primarily executive produces. It’ll be shot in France, and feature dialogue in French, English, and Arabic, in natural innovative fashion.
It’s never certain whether a musical series will flop or go big; Smash and The Get Down saw early cancellations, whereas Ryan Murphy‘s Glee was among the most successful series of the century. With Chazelle in charge, something’s bound to go right.
There’s still plenty of information we don’t know about the series, including the cast and who will direct the remaining episodes. Expect more details to come.
