mozart in the jungle

Mozart in the Jungle will exclusively come to Amazon Prime Instant Video on December 23rd.

The 10-part comedy drama is based on Blair Tindall's 2005 memoir of her wild times as a classical musician, involving drugs and wild parties.

Lola Kirke ('Gone Girl', 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit') will take the lead role. It's produced by Jason Schwartzman ('Rushmore'), Roman Coppola ('Moonrise Kingdom'), Paul Weitz ('American Pie') and John Strauss ('The Client List').

It also stars Saffron Burrows ('Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'), Malcolm McDowell ('A Clockwork Orange') and Gael Garcia Bernal ('The Motorcycle Diaries').

"Our customers will be immersed in a provocative and compelling world," Roy Price, vice president of Amazon Studios, said.

"Jason, Roman, Paul and John have brilliantly tapped into this microcosm brought to life by an unparalleled ensemble cast."

Coppola added: "Classical music has always interested me. By being part of this show I've been able to immerse myself in this fascinating world.

"I think the viewer will be equally surprised and intrigued as I was with what goes on behind the curtain at the symphony."

Amazon will release one episode a week, so it's bad news if you were planning on bingeing on the whole lot before Christmas Day.
