Damien Chazelle, the Oscar-winning director of La La Land, is teaming up with Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) to bring a new musical drama to Netflix in 2018, according to Deadline. Chazelle will direct two of the eight total episodes while also serving as executive producer.

Set in present-day Paris, The Eddy revolves around a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them. Thorne's screenplay will feature dialogue in French, English, and Arabic.

Original music is being supplied by Glen Ballard, the composer behind the forthcoming Alanis Morissette musical Jagged Little Pill (he co-wrote the album with Morissette) and Ghost the Musical.
