Amazon Sets MOZART IN THE JUNGLE Season 1 Launch

mozart_jungle_205.JPGAmazon will debut the entire first season of MOZART IN THE JUNGLE on December 23rd, Amazon Studios announced.

“Our customers will be immersed in a provocative and compelling world,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios, in a statement. “[Executive producers] Jason [Schwartzman], Roman [Coppola], Paul [Weitz] and John [Strauss] have brilliantly tapped into this microcosm brought to life by an unparalleled ensemble cast.”

“Classical music has always interested me,” Coppola said. “By being part of this show I’ve been able to immerse myself in this fascinating world. I think the viewer will be equally as surprised and intrigued as I was with what goes on behind the curtain at the symphony.”

Per Amazon, “Starring Gael Garcia Bernal (Rosewater), Saffron Burrows (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Hannah Dunne (Frances Ha), Lola Kirke (Gone Girl), and Peter Vack (I Just Want My Pants Back), Mozart in the Jungle draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts. The series guest stars include Malcolm McDowell (The Mentalist) and Bernadette Peters (Smash), and is Executive Produced by Roman Coppola (Moonrise Kingdom), Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited), Paul Weitz (About a Boy), and John Strauss (There’s Something About Mary).

Based on the critically acclaimed memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music by Blair Tindall, Mozart in the Jungle is seen through the eyes of a young oboist, Hailey (Kirke), who tries to navigate through the egos and eccentricities of a world renowned orchestra, and new conductor Rodrigo (Bernal), an enfant terrible whose passion for music threatens the plans of the orchestra’s old guard. That old guard is represented by Thomas (McDowell), the reluctantly outgoing conductor, and Gloria (Peters), the chairwoman of the board, who wonder what they have wrought by bringing Rodrigo into the fold. The musicians themselves, a colorful family of disparate personalities, are struggling to deal with this new regime. Along with her friends Alex (played by Vack), a dancer on the brink of success, Cynthia (Burrows), a worldly cellist, and Lizzie (played by Dunne), a world class partier, Hailey searches for what it means to dedicate your life to music.”

The first episode of MOZART IN THE JUNGLE is streaming now, and the rest of the ten-episode first season will be available to Amazon Prime members in the US, UK, and Germany on December 23rd.
