Amandla Stenberg is to star in new musical series


Amandla Stenberg will feature in The Eddy, a new Netflix musical drama series by Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle. Netflix describes the series as focusing on “a jazz club in the heart of multicultural Paris facing danger.” Moonlight actor André Holland will play the main role of the club manager while the non-binary lesbian Hunger Games star is to play his daughter. “Amandla Stenberg will star in #TheEddy, Damien Chazelle’s eight-part musical drama as Julie, the daughter of Elliott (Andre Holland) who suddenly shows up in Paris and forces him to face his past,” Netflix described in a tweet from its See What’s Next account earlier this month. The exact release date is yet to be announced, but it is rumored to be aired globally in 2020. Deadline reports that production will begin in the spring in France and that the show will feature dialogue in French, English and Arabic.
