mozart in the jungle

Amazon has commissioned a third series of the comedy/drama 'Mozart in the Jungle'. Production will start later this year.

The show lifts the lid on the debauched lifestyles of musicians in the world of classical music. It's based on the bestselling memoir of the same name by Blair Tindall, which was released in 2005.

Last month, the series won two Golden Globes: one for Best TV Series (Comedy or Musical) and one for Best Actor in a TV Series (Comedy or Musical) for Gael Garcia Bernal.

Bernal plays the conductor Rodrigo. Him and the musicians will head to Europe in series three.

"'Mozart in the Jungle' bursts with creativity and passion, and offers audiences something truly unique," Joe Lewis, Amazon Studios' head of half-hour series, said in a statement.

"Amazon is proud to have two of the most risky and enthralling comedy series on television today."

"We're grateful to Amazon for endowing our orchestra with another season," said executive producer Jason Schwartzman.

"We can't wait to follow our characters through the vast world of music, whether performing on a subway platform or in the grand concert halls of Europe."
