Apple Orders Untitled Drama from Oscar Winner Damien Chazelle

Apple continues to make bold moves into original programming today with a straight-to-series order for an untitled drama created by Oscar winner Damien Chazelle (Whiplash, La La Land).

In a first, Chazelle is going to write and direct every episode of the show. An exact episode count as well as additional details on the plot are being kept under wraps.

Chazelle will executive produce alongside Jordan Horowitz and Fred Berger. Media Rights Capital, Original Headquarters and Automatik Entertainment will produce.

The untitled series marks Chazelle's second foray into television - following The Eddy which landed at Netflix. Chazelle is set to executive produce and direct two episodes of that drama.
