Mozart in the Jungle, Season 4 premieres this year on W Network.
Canadian Broadcast Premiere
Mozart in the Jungle is a half-hour comedic drama that draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts. Based on the critically acclaimed memoir by Blair Tindall, the series is seen through the eyes of a young oboist, Hailey (Lola Kirke, Reaching for the Moon), who tries to navigate through the egos and eccentricities of a world renowned orchestra, and new conductor Rodrigo (Gael García Bernal, The Motorcycle Diaries), an enfant terrible whose passion for purity threatens the plans of the orchestra old guard. That old guard is represented by Thomas (Malcolm McDowell, A Clockwork Orange), the reluctantly outgoing conductor, and Gloria (Bernadette Peters, Pennies from Heaven), the chairwoman of the board, who wonder what they have wrought by bringing Rodrigo into the fold. The musicians themselves, a colourful family of disparate personalities, are struggling to deal with this new regime. Along with her friends Alex (Monica Bellucci), a dancer on the brink of success, Cynthia (Saffron Burrows, The Bank Job), a worldly cellist, and Lizzie (Hannah Dunne), a world class partier, Hailey searches for what it means to dedicate your life to music.
