Be warned: this isn't another lovely dance with Hollywood stars, but something much grittier. Here’s everything we know.

What’s The Eddy plot?
Set in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, The Eddy follows former New York pianist and club-owner Elliot as he struggles to balance professional duties with personal ones. He co-owns The Eddy club with his business partner Farid, who might be up to something shady, while also managing the house band (fronted by his on-off partner Maja).
His past eventually comes back to haunt him when his daughter Julie re-enters his life, perhaps permanently.

The visuals are handheld (some shot in 16mm), giving the series a more documentary-like feel. Considering writer Jack Thorne’s previous TV credits in harsh social dramas like The Virtues and The Accident, could The Eddy dive into some darker places?
The music was written by multi-Grammy winner Glen Ballard.
Who’s in The Eddy cast?
Moonlight star André Holland plays jazz pianist Elliot, alongside Joanna Kulig (Cold War) as Maja. Tahar Rahim (The Looming Tower) plays the club’s co-owner Farid, and The Hate U Give’s Amandla Stenberg plays Elliot’s estranged daughter Julie.
