While Netflix is pulling out all the stops for their $90 million “Marco Polo” which debuts next weekend on the streaming service, the folks at Amazon continue to push on with their own original programming. And while they have yet to display the same kind of marketing savvy and audience interest as their competitors, the product is just as attractive, and a new trailer for their upcoming “Mozart In The Jungle” has arrived.
The talent behind this one is impressive, with creators Paul Weitz, Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman (who also has a role in the show), and Alex Timbers bringing Blair Tindell‘s memoir to the small screen, telling the story of a young, hip conductor and musical director (played with eccentric enthusiasm by Gael Garcia Bernal) who joins a New York City orchestra and shakes things up much to the chagrin to the longtime players and staff. It seems to be a mix of drama, comedy and fantasy (not a shock given Coppola’s involvement) and most of all, the next show to put on your binge-watch list.
“Mozart In The Jungle” arrives on Amazon just in time for the holidays on December 23rd. Watch below.
