Amazon Studios is going two-for-two with their recent comedy launches.
After handing out a second season to the award winning Jeffrey Tambor fronted Transparent, the streaming arm of the e-commerce giant has renewed fellow comedy series Mozart In The Jungle for a 10 episode second season, which will premiere on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the US, the UK and Germany in early 2016.
Penned by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers, Mozart In The Jungle is all about sex, drugs and classical music and shows that what happens behind the curtains at the symphony can be just as captivating as what happens on stage. The comedy stars Gael Garcia Bernal, Saffron Burrows, Lola Kirke and Malcom McDowell – all of whom are returning for the second season.
Mozart In The Jungle was part of Amazon’s second pilot season, and was picked up to series in March 2014 along with the aforementioned Transparent; as well as dramas Bosch, which premiered its debut season earlier this month; and Chris Carter’s The After, which was cancelled before entering production. The first season of Mozart In The Jungle premiered on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the US, the UK and Germany on December 23rd 2014.
“The first season of Mozart in the Jungle was a big hit with our customers and I’m thrilled that we’re able to produce a second season,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “Roman, Jason, and Paul brought viewers into this rarely-seen world of the symphony. I know fans of the series will be in for a treat when the second season premieres early next year.”
“Jason, Paul and I are delighted to work on a second season of Mozart in the Jungle,” added Roman Coppola. “There are so many interesting stories we want to tell and we’re looking forward to shooting another season with our wonderful cast and team of collaborators. We’re grateful to all the folks at Amazon who believe in this project and supporting us to portray the world of our symphony in what we hope will be an interesting, fun and imaginative season of television. We can’t wait for the curtain to rise on season two.”
