Eddy, The: Joanne (Cold War) Kulig Joins Cast of Damien Chazelle’s Musical Series

Joanna Kulig, who recently scored big in Pawel Pawlikowski’s Oscar-nominated drama Cold War, has joined the cast of Oscar winner Damien Chazelle’s upcoming musical drama series, The Eddy.

The Paris-set Netflix show centers on a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them.

The series will start shooting on location in Paris later this year.

Kulig will play Maja, a singer who is resisting committing to her on-again-off-again partner, Elliot (Andre Holland).

Maja, who has a drinking problem, is the absolute center of attention when she sings, but otherwise, she’s adrift, at a crossroads where every direction looks like a dead end.

Kulig’s next role will be opposite Joel Kinnaman in the upcoming Amazon thriller series “Hanna.”

She joins previously announced lead Andre Holland.
Holland will play Elliot Udo, a celebrated jazz pianist in New York who has moved to Paris and is hiding from everyone as the part-owner of a failing jazz club. He is emotionally stunted, but when his fifteen-year-old daughter shows up suddenly, he has to face his weakness and learn to grow up.

The 8-episode series, which is Chazelle’s first project for TV, is written by Jack Thorne and comes from Endeavor Content.

The show will feature dialogue in French, English and Arabic.

Chazelle will produce and direct the first two episodes, and exec Alan Poul will also direct the final two episodes.

Holland will also serve as a co-executive producer.
