Besides a moody teaser back in February, information on Netflix’s brand-new series The Eddy have actually been little. Now, a full trailer sheds a little more light on the series, which is directed by La La Land and First Male’s Damien Chazelle.
André Holland stars as Elliot Udo, who left his life in New york city to start a jazz club, The Eddy, in Paris. The club’s battles are just starting, as Elliot’s business partner Farid (Tahar Rahim) might have gotten blended up in some dubious negotiations. As Elliot attempts to keep things afloat, the arrival of his child Julie (Amandla Stenberg) and ups and downs in his relationship with Maja (Joanna Kulig), who fronts the house band, add to his installing tension.
The trailer catches a few of that stress and anxiety as it ends up being clear Elliot might have bitten off more than he can chew, which what he left in New york city might be capturing up to him.
The Eddy is made up of 8 episodes, all of which debut on Netflix on May 8.
