The new classical music TV series ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ has been awarded two prized Golden Globe awards - at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s ceremony in Los Angeles.
Created by Alex Timbers, Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Paul Weitz, for the ‘Amazon Prime’ instant video service, the half-hour, 20-episode 1st series was awarded the coveted ‘Best TV Comedy Series’ accolade.
Actor Gael García Bernal, who plays Rodrigo, the symphony’s dynamic and bizarre young conductor was also awarded ‘Best Actor in a TV Comedy’.
Based on Blair Tindall’s classical-music insider’s memoir ‘Sex, Drugs and Classical Music’, the series documents a budding oboist, Hailey, as she navigates her way through the longstanding traditions of the New York City classical music scene.
