The City of Lights is shining just for us.
Netflix has tapped â€œLa La Landâ€� director Damien Chazelle to helm an an eight-episode musical drama set in Paris, titled â€œThe Eddy.â€�
The series revolves around a club, its owner, the house band and the â€œchaotic city in that surrounds them,â€� reportedly the Netflix press release, and will explore the relationship between the American and French-Arab co-owners.
â€œThe Eddyâ€�Â will be filmed in France, and will feature conversation in French, English and Arabic, as part of Netflixâ€™s ongoing efforts to reach a global audience and internationalize its content.Â
Chazelle will direct the opening two episodes,Â as well as executive produce the series, alongside Emmy-winning producer Alan Poul.Â Jack Thorne (â€œNational Treasureâ€�) will pen the script with Grammy Award-winning music composer Glen Ballard writing the original score.Â
â€œIâ€™ve always dreamed of shooting in Paris, so Iâ€™m doubly excited to be teaming up with Jack, Glen and Alan on this story, and thrilled in that we have found a home for it at Netflix,â€� Chazelle said.
The 32-year-old director, of course, picked up Best Director prize at the Oscars this year for the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone vehicle. He will next reunite with Gosling in â€œFirst Man,â€� a Neil Armstrong biopic set to land in theaters Oct. 12, 2018.
