Apple has given a straight-to-series order to a drama series to be written and directed by Damien Chazelle.
The tech giant gave no details about the project on Thursday (January 25), nor did it specify the number of episodes in the series, but it did confirm that La La Land director Chazelle will write and direct all episodes.
Media Right Capital will produce the series and La La Land producers Jordan Horowitz and Fred Berger will executive produce through their respective companies, Original Headquarters and Automatik.
The Apple series is the second TV project for Oscar-winner Chazelle. Last September he was confirmed as executive producer (and director of the first two episodes) of Netflix’s eight-part musical drama series The Eddy, to be shot in France.
The new Chazelle series joins an Apple TV slate that already includes a Reese Witherspoon-Jennifer Aniston drama set on a morning TV show; Steven Spielberg’s reboot of sci-fi anthology Amazing Stories; thriller Are You Sleeping, with Octavia Spencer; and a space drama from Battlestar Galactica writer-producer Ron Moore.
Most recently, Apple ordered See, a sci-fi drama series from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and a comedy series from Kristen Wiig.
