Apple has added another series to its content lineup as it readies to take on Netflix and Amazon. The new show is a drama from Oscar-winning “La La Land” director Damien Chazelle.
Details of the series’ plot are being kept under wraps.
It is known, however, that Chazelle plans to write and direct the series, which will be executive produced by the acclaimed director, along with Oscar-nominated producers Jordan Horowitz (“La La Land“) through his production company Original Headquarters, and Fred Berger (“La La Land”) under his Automatik banner. The series will be produced by Media Rights Capital.
This is Chazelle’s second push into streaming television. He also has musical drama series “The Eddy” at Netflix, which is set to be shot in France.
The Chazelle series is the latest in a string of video projects announced by Apple. Others include include a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s anthology series “Amazing Stories,” an unnamed Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s morning show drama, Octavia Spencer’s “Are You Sleeping,“ and a yet-to-be named comedy series from Kristen Wiig.
Apple is also working on developing “See” a drama from Steven Knight and Francis Lawrence, along with a docu-series from Matt Tyrnauer and Matthew Weaver titled “Home.”
