'The Eddy' Trailer: André Holland, Amandla Stenberg Star In Netflix's Paris-Set Musical Drama

Netflix has released the first full trailer for The Eddy. The Paris-set limited series is from La La Land helmer Damien Chazelle and stars André Holland.

The official description: Once a celebrated jazz pianist in New York, Elliot Udo (Holland) is now the co-owner of struggling club The Eddy, where he manages the house band fronted by lead singer and on-again-off-again girlfriend Maja (Kulig). As Elliot learns that his business partner Farid (Rahim) may be involved in some questionable practices at the club, secrets begin to come to light that have also been concealed from Farid's wife Amira (Bekhti), and when Elliot’s troubled teenage daughter Julie (Stenberg) suddenly arrives in Paris to live with him, his personal and professional worlds quickly start to unravel as he confronts his past, fighting to save the club and protect those closest to him.

Chazelle directs episodes of the series, along with Houda Benyamina, Alan Poul and Jack Thorne.
