The Eddy: Netflix Announces Musical Drama Series from Director Damien Chazelle

Damien Chazelle and Netflix Team for Musical Drama The Eddy

It described "The Eddy" as a musical drama set in contemporary multicultural Paris revolving around a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them. According to Netflix, the series will include English, Arabic, and French dialogue.

Damien Chazelle, director of La La Land, is joining forces with Netflix to make a TV series set in a Parisian nightclub. The project was initially announced in April, with Netflix picking up the exclusive rights.

Lauded writer Jack Thorne (National Treasure) is penning the script and six-time Grammy Award-winning composer Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill") is writing the original score.

"La La Land", a romantic musical set in modern-day Los Angeles about the dreams and challenges of a struggling young actress and a jazz musician, wowed audiences worldwide and won six Oscars in February, including for directing, music and for Emma Stone's lead actress role.

Now even the shelters are flooding in Texas
Motiva Enterprises' Port Arthur plant, which has been in operation for more than 100 years, stopped operating Tuesday night. Harris County Flood Control District Meteorologist Jeff Linder confirmed a new record rainfall total in the county.

And in a flagrant, fundamentally unfair violation of our desire to binge this series immediately, no release date has been specified.

There's no word yet about when the series will debut or who might be cast in it (though we could totally see Ryan Gosling as a guy who runs a club in Paris).

Netflix has become an absolute powerhouse the last couple of years mainly because of its original content. He has teamed up with IMG and the streaming giant for the musical drama "The Eddy".

"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", said Erik Barmack, vice president of Netflix's global original content. BAFTA-winning producers Spence ("Guerrilla", "Fortitude") and Swinden ("Luther", "Peaky Blinders") will executive produce along with Chazelle, Thorne, Poul and Ballard.
