Damien Chazelle Brings Musical Drama To Netflix

Netflix has announced The Eddy, a new eight-part musical drama from Damien Chazelle (La La Land).

Executive produced by Damien Chazelle and written by Jack Thorne (This is England), The Eddy is a musical drama set in contemporary multi-cultural Paris revolving around a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them.

Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Originals at Netflix says: “From the intense, complex relationship between a jazz drummer and his instructor in Whiplash to his dazzling duo of lovelorn Los Angelenos in La La Land, Damien’s work is emotional and electrifying.”

“His projects have a rhythm all their own, and we’re incredibly excited for him, Jack, Glen and the production team to bring their vision for The Eddy to Netflix.”

The Eddy will be filmed in France with dialogue in French, English and Arabic, with original music written by Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson’s Bad).
