CBS Interactive, Inc.

Australian actress Melissa George has joined the cast of The Eddy, an upcoming eight-episode Netflix mini-series from Oscar winner Damien Chazelle (La La Land, Whiplash).

Set in contemporary multicultural Paris, the series is to be a musical drama that revolves around a club, the club owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them.

André Holland (Castle Rock, Moonlight) is to play the club owner and Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give, The Darkest Minds) will be playing his daughter. They are visited by his ex-wife and her mother, Alison Jenkins (George), leading to a complicated situation.

George got her start on Aussie soap Home & Away and has since gathered a list of credits covering both film (The Amityville Horror, 30 Days of Night) and television (Alias, Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife). She recently starred in Aussie series Bad Mothers, which aired on the Nine Network.

The Eddy is to be filmed in France, with dialogue in French, English and Arabic. Chazelle is directing two episodes and is on board as executive producer.
