La La Land director Damien Chazelle is in high demand across the streaming realm.
After being tapped by Netflix to executive produce an eight-episode musical drama series called The Eddy, 33-year-old Chazelle has received another straight-to-series order from Apple. While The Eddy is set in Paris and revolves around a nightclub, its owner, and the house band — with Chazelle slated to direct just two episodes — details of the forthcoming Apple drama have yet to be revealed, per Variety. Furthermore, at Apple, Chazelle will direct every episode of the as-yet-untitled show.
Media Rights Capital will produce the series, and Original Headquarters‘ Jordan Horowitz and Automatik Entertainment’s Fred Berger will serve as executive producers.
