'La La Land' Director's Musical Series 'The Eddy' Lands at Netflix

Fan of ‘La La Land?’ Then You’ll Love the New Parisian Musical Series Coming to Netflix

Chazelle, and the other unnamed director (s), will work off a script by English screenwriter Jack Thorne, who, besides TV series such as The Last Panthers, National Treasure, Glue and Skins, wrote the hit franchise-continuing stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based off a story from creator J.K. Rowling and John Tiffany. Academy Award victor Damien Chazelle, who directed the Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling-led film that swept us all off our feet, is now working on a "musical drama" for Netflix that sounds like a little bit of La La Land, a little bit of Moulin Rouge, and a lot of fun. Glen Ballard, a Grammy victor best known for his work on Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, will write original music for the series.

Chazelle is just the latest major name to join the streaming platform.

The success of La La Land has brought musical films back into vogue, however Netflix's previous venture into the genre yielded disappointing results. It also once again shows that they are not anxious about the reported debt they're carrying around. 2018 is shaping up to be busy. On top of all that, Six Feet Under and The Newsroom Emmy victor Alan Poul will executive produce.

The eight-part musical drama will be set in modern-day Paris and center on a "club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them". Written by Jack Thorne (Skins, This is England), The Eddy will be like a musical drama in the Paris multicultural today and, more specifically, the owner of a parisian club. "This project is the definition of premium, global programming, and as one of the first projects of its kind from IMG, we couldn't be happier to have Netflix as the home to take it to audiences around the world". He will next reunite with Gosling in "First Man", a Neil Armstrong biopic set to land in theaters October 12, 2018. Barmack also told Variety that The Eddy would fall "somewhere in between" Chazelle's previous movies Whiplash and La La Land.
