Netflix has released first look photos from The Eddy, the upcoming musical drama series from La La Land helmer Damien Chazelle.
The series stars André Holland, Amandla Stenberg, Joanna Kulig, Tahar Rahim and Leila Bekhti.
The Eddy is a musical drama set in contemporary multicultural Paris that revolves around a club, its owner, the house band and the chaotic city that surrounds them. The eight-episode series will be shot in France and “feature dialogue in French, English and Arabic for premiere exclusively to Netflix members worldwide,” per the official description. Holland is a co-executive producer on the series which is set at the streaming giant from Endeavor Content. His character is Elliot Udo, “a celebrated jazz pianist in New York” who is now in Paris as a “part-owner of a failing jazz club, hiding from everyone. He has an on-again-off-again relationship with his lead singer but is emotionally stunted. When his fifteen-year-old daughter shows up suddenly, he has to face his weakness and learn to grow up.”
Chazelle will direct episodes of the series, along with Houda Benyamina, Alan Poul and Jack Thorne.
