La La Land director to film Netflix musical in Paris
Produced by Fifty Fathoms and IMG, The Eddy will film next year and will tell the story of a club, its owner and the house band in modern Paris.
The eight-part series will feature dialogue in English, French and Arabic.
“We couldn’t be happier that he will be shooting The Eddy in France and that we will bring this bold, global and multilingual series to our members around the world,” said Erik Barmack, vice president of international originals at Netflix.
France has had an international boost since increasing its filming incentive support 18 months ago. Foreign production spending in the country subsequently rose by nearly €100m.
Chazelle’s La La Land was a high-profile musical success story and was notable for being one of few feature films to shoot entirely in Los Angeles.
