Apple to save jazz with new show from creator of “La La Land”

Okay, so we don’t really know if Apple plans to save jazz. Like most in the flurry of shows Apple has announced recently, we don’t know what this one’s about. All we know from a report at Variety is that La La Land creator Damien Chazelle will write and direct each episode, and that—shockingly—Reese Witherspoon doesn’t seem to be involved.

Per Variety:

Details of the series’ plot are being kept under wraps, but Chazelle will write and direct every episode of the series, as well as serving as executive producer. In addition to Chazelle, the series will be executive produced by Jordan Horowitz via his Original Headquarters banner, and Fred Berger for Automatik Entertainment. Media Rights Capital is the studio.

Ironically, Chazelle’s only other streaming TV show—a musical drama called The Eddy—is in the works over at Netflix. We’re still not sure exactly how Apple plans to distribute all of their new shows in development, but the service is expected to compete with streaming media platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

When Apple finally does make these shows available to watch, there’s going to be a lot of binging going on.
