After two straight Ryan Gosling vehicles, La La Land director Damien Chazelle is now likewise doubling down on cool jazz club pianists with his first television effort, The Eddy.
The eight-episode Netflix limited series is described as “a musical drama set in contemporary Paris revolving around a jazz club, its owner, the house band, and the dangerous city that surrounds them.” Moonlight‘s André Holland stars alongside Amandla Stenberg, Joanna Kulig, Tahar Rahim, and Leïla Bekhti.
This first teaser isn’t all that much of a tease, but hey, did you know Chazelle also wrote the Elijah Wood thriller Grand Piano? This guy is absolutely nuts for pianists. His feature length adaptation of Donald Duck and Daffy Duck dueling in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is going to be just fantastic, but in the meantime, we’ll have to make do with The Eddy when that hits Netflix May8.
