Damien Chazelle isn’t just someone in the crowd anymore — he’s now been signed on to create a musical series for Netflix entitled The Eddy.

The Eddy is set in contemporary Paris, and will be about a club located in the heart of the city, the club owner and the various people who come in and out of it. No actors have yet been announced.

Speaking with Variety, Erik Barmack, Netflix’s VP of international originals, said, “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.”

The show is also being written by Jack Thorne, who worked on the mini-series This Is England ’86 and is also attached to write Star Wars: Episode IX, and is being composed by Glen Ballard — known for doing several Michael Jackson and Katy Perry music videos.

Known for making the critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated films La La Land and Whiplash, this will be Chazelle’s first time working on a television show.

Also speaking with Variety, Chazelle said, “I’ve always dreamed of shooting in Paris, so I’m doubly excited to be teaming up with Jack, Glen and Alan on this story, and thrilled that we have found a home for it at Netflix.”

This partnership with Netflix marks another high-end team-up the company has been gunning for as of late — having signed on such directors as Martin Scorsese, David Fincher and the Coen Brothers to create content for them.

No release date has been set yet for The Eddy.
