Straight from Damien Chazelle’s brilliant, creative mind, ‘The Eddy’ is all set to drop on Netflix. Interspersed with dynamic and uplifting performances, the series conveys the power of music to heal, unite, and turn chaos into beauty.
During this rather dull and lifeless lockdown, we could all use a little more music in our lives.
BAFTA Award winner Jack Thorne (National Treasure) and six-time Grammy Award winner Glen Ballard collaborated with Chazelle on this massive new project which is set in the vibrant multicultural neighborhoods of modern-day Paris.
The Eddy focuses mostly on a jazz club of the same name and details the dramas and intrigues that take place there.
The release date for The Eddy is Friday, May 8, when all eight episodes of the show will be released at once at 00:01 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
