Award-winning director Damien Chazelle is making a TV series for Apple. The 'La La Land' and 'Whiplash' director will write and direct every episode of the new drama, though what it's actually about is still top secret.

The as-yet-untitled series will be executive produced by Jordan Horowitz and Fred Berger, who worked with Chazelle on 'La La Land'.

Chazelle's previous TV work includes a forthcoming musical drama for Netflix.

Apple is betting big on original content. It's already signed up a Stephen Spielberg anthology series, as well as a space drama from 'Battlestar Galactica''s Ronald D. Moore and a new drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.

But Apple isn't alone. Netflix is set to spend $8 billion on original content this year, while Amazon has signed up a series based on 'The Lord of the Rings', which it hopes will be the next 'Game of Thrones'.

The question is, how will Apple distribute these new series? Previous music-themed documentaries and reality shows have debuted on Apple Music, but that would seem a strange fit for non-music related content. Maybe it will finally get around to launching its long-rumoured TV streaming service.
