The series, announced by the streaming service Friday, is set in modern-day Paris and follows a club owner, a house band and the city that surrounds them.

The Oscar-winning director is set to executive produce "The Eddy" and will direct two episodes out of the planned eight.

Jack Thorne is penning the script with original music being written by six-time Grammy Award-winner Glen Ballard who has worked on albums including Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill and Michael Jackson's Bad.

Alan Poul ("Six Feet Under," "The Newsroom"), is also executive producing.

"I've always dreamed of shooting in Paris, so I'm doubly excited to be teaming up with Jack, Glen and Alan on this story, and thrilled that we have found a home for it at Netflix," Chazelle said in a statement.

"From the intense, complex relationship between a jazz drummer and his instructor in 'Whiplash' to his dazzling duo of lovelorn Los Angelenos in 'La La Land,' Damien's work is emotional and electrifying. His projects have a rhythm all their own, and we're incredibly excited for him, Jack, Glen, Alan and the production team to bring their vision for 'The Eddy' to Netflix. We couldn't be happier that he will be shooting 'The Eddy' in France and that we will bring this bold, global and multilingual series to our members around the world," added vice president of international originals at Netflix Erik Barmack.

A release date for "The Eddy" was not announced.
