Amazon Studios has revealed the first trailer for Season 1 of “Mozart in the Jungle,” starring Gael Garcia Bernal and set in the high-pressure/sexy world of symphony orchestras. Check out the trailer below!
Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries) stars as Rodrigo, the hotshot new conductor of the New York Symphony. He is joined by Malcolm McDowell (“Franklin & Bash”) as Thomas, a more seasoned conductor being forced into retirement by Rodrigo, Lola Kirke (Reaching for the Moon) as the impressionable oboist Hailey, and Bernadette Peters (“Smash”) who plays Gloria, the Chairwoman of the Board of the symphony. “Mozart in the Jungle” also stars Saffron Burrows (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) as Cynthia, a cellist in the middle of an affair with Thomas, Peter Vack (CBGB) as Joshua, a talented dancer out of Julliard who becomes Hailey’s love interest, and Hannah Dunne (This is It) as Lizzie, Hailey’s friend and roommate.
“Mozart in the Jungle” was written by Academy Award-nominee Roman Coppola (The Darjeeling Limited), Jason Schwartzman (Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), with the pilot directed by Chris Weitz (About a Boy, Admission). The entire first season will be available to stream on Amazon Prime instant video on December 23.
