Damien Chazelle, the Oscar-winning director of hit movie La La Land, has another musical in the works, this time a multilingual television series set in Paris.
Streaming company Netflix said on Friday it was teaming up with Chazelle on The Eddy, an eight-part series that will be shot in France with dialogue in French, English and Arabic.
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.
"I've always dreamed of shooting in Paris," Chazelle, 32, whose father is French, said in a statement.“
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 lead actress role.
No casting was announced for The Eddy, which will be executive produced by Chazelle, who will also direct two episodes. The music will be written by Glen Ballard, a six-time Grammy winner.
