You just cannot keep Damien Chazelle away from jazz, and his latest venture — a Netflix series — is only weeks away and the streaming giant has just released the official trailer. The Eddy will be released on the platform on May 8, 2020 — add it to your list now.

What’s the premise of Netflix series The Eddy?

Set in the vibrant multicultural neighbourhoods of modern-day Paris, The Eddy tells the story of the owner of a struggling club, its house band and the dangers they face from the chaotic city that surrounds them.
Interspersed with dynamic and uplifting performances, The Eddy conveys the power of music to heal, unite and turn chaos into beauty.
The series was brought to the screen through a collaboration between Alan Poul, Damien Chazelle, BAFTA Award winner Jack Thorne (National Treasure) and six-time Grammy Award® winner Glen Ballard, who wrote the songs and established The Eddy’s band which is composed of real-life musicians Randy Kerber, Ludovic Louis, Lada Obradovic, Jowee Omicil and Damian Nueva Cortes. The limited series stars André Holland, Joanna Kulig alongside Amandla Stenberg, Taham Rahim and Leïla Bekhti.

First impressions
Well, it’s hard to judge at this stage but you can hear instantly how jazz will be part of the central premise of The Eddy. If it goes by Damien Chazelle’s track record of incorporating music into a story, then we are in for a ride. It’s noticeable that Netflix calls the series “limited” so we are very much expecting this to be a one-off.

Netflix has decided to make a range of posters for the series:
