Based on the critically acclaimed memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music by Blair Tindall, Mozart in the Jungle is seen through the eyes of a young oboist, Hailey (Kirke), who tries to navigate through the egos and eccentricities of the renowned New York symphony, and new conductor Rodrigo (Bernal), an enfant terrible whose passion for music threatens the plans of the orchestra's old guard. That old guard is represented by Thomas (McDowell), the reluctantly outgoing conductor, and Gloria (Peters), the chairwoman of the board, who wonder what they have wrought by bringing Rodrigo into the fold. The musicians themselves, a colorful family of disparate personalities, are struggling to deal with this new regime. Along with her friends Alex (played by Vack), a dancer on the brink of success, Cynthia (Burrows), a worldly cellist, and Lizzie (played by Dunne), a world class partier, Hailey searches for what it means to dedicate your life to music.
"We're thrilled to be working with a great team bringing to life this fascinating world," said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. "The remarkable talent in front of and behind the camera have shepherded a story of passion and dedication that we hope will resonate with our customers."
"When Jason first brought me the book, Mozart in the Jungle, and suggested that it would make an interesting premise for a television show--I felt immediately and instinctively, that it would be such a fascinating world to learn about and to portray on film," said Roman Coppola. "I hope that the viewers who get a chance to see our show will be as deeply drawn into this world as we were."
Other guest stars in Mozart in the Jungle include Debra Monk (Damages) as Betty, Wallace Shawn (Gossip Girl) as Winslow, Mackenzie Leigh (General Hospital) as Addison, Nora Arnezeder (Safe House) as Ana Maria, Jerry Adler (The Good Wife) as Lazlo, John Hodgman (Arthur) as Marlon, and Santino Fontana (Frozen) as Mozart. The series is co-Executive Produced by Alex Timbers, and Produced by Michael Zakin and Caroline Baron. Weitz and Coppola directed episodes, along with Bart Freundlich, Adam Brooks, Daryl Wein, Tricia Brock and Daisy Mayer.
