Damien Chazelle is on a roll. After the huge success of “La La Land,” the Rhode Island-born American director has booked a series directing job with Netflix.

The series, called “The Eddy,” will be the first musical series on the streaming platform after it earlier canceled the expensive production of Baz Luhrmann “The Get Down.”

According to the Guardian, Damien Chazelle will be executive producing the musical series, which will be about a club, its owner, and employees and the “chaotic city that surrounds them.” He will also be directing two episodes of the musical series, which was written by BAFTA and Olivier winner Jack Thorne.

The original songs that will be included in the show will be written by Glen Ballard, a producer responsible for hits in Michael Jackson’s “Bad” and Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill.”

What makes “The Eddy” unique is that the show will feature Arabic, English and French speakers, with their dialogue subtitled for everyone.

Chazelle’s addition to the production team only ups the credentials of the show as he has been known to specialize in movies about music as evidenced by his work on “La La Land” and “Whiplash.”

Damien Chazelle making history

When Damien Chazelle went up to collect his Best Director trophy last February, his name was written in the history books because he became the youngest winner in the category ever. He was only younger by 221 days than Norman Taurog of “Skippy” who won in 1931.

At the same time, he is also notable for becoming the second Best Director winner who got the trophy for a musical movie after Vincente Minnelli. He prevailed over other names in the category like Denis Villeneuve, Mel Gibson, Barry Jenkins and Kenneth Lonergan.

On the night of his win, his film also enjoyed becoming one of the most nominated movies ever, tying the record set by “Titanic” and “All About Eve.” The movie eventually took home six awards, including cinematography, original song and best actress for lead star Emma Stone.

The movie will star Ryan Gosling, Jason Clarke, and Jon Bernthal and is expected to bow in the 2018-2019 awards season. His mystery-suspense screenplay, “The Claim,” has also been optioned and may be released in 2018.
