"Mozart in the Jungle" is a dramatic comedy series on Amazon that stars Gael García Bernal ("Rosewater"), Saffron Burrows ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), Hannah Dunne ("Frances Ha"), Lola Kirke ("Gone Girl"), and Peter Vack ("I Just Want My Pants Back").

Based on the critically acclaimed memoir "Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music" by Blair Tindall, the series draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts.

The series is seen through the eyes of a young oboist, Hailey (Kirke), who tries to navigate through the egos and eccentricities of a world renowned orchestra, and new conductor Rodrigo (Bernal), an enfant terrible whose passion for music threatens the plans of the orchestra's old guard. That old guard is represented by Thomas (Malcolm McDowell), the reluctantly outgoing conductor, and Gloria (Peters), the chairwoman of the board, who wonder what they have wrought by bringing Rodrigo into the fold. The musicians themselves, a colorful family of disparate personalities, are struggling to deal with this new regime. Along with her friends Alex (Vack), a dancer on the brink of success, Cynthia (Burrows), a worldly cellist, and Lizzie (Dunne), a world class partier, Hailey searches for what it means to dedicate your life to music.

Guest stars include Malcolm McDowell ("The Mentalist") and Bernadette Peters ("Smash"), Debra Monk ("Damages") as Betty, Wallace Shawn ("Gossip Girl") as Winslow, Mackenzie Leigh ("General Hospital") as Addison, Nora Arnezeder ("Safe House") as Ana Maria, Jerry Adler ("The Good Wife") as Lazlo, John Hodgman ("Arthur") as Marlon, and Santino Fontana ("Frozen") as Mozart.

"Mozart in the Jungle" is produced by Amazon Studios. The series is executive produced by Roman Coppola ("Moonrise Kingdom"), Jason Schwartzman ("The Darjeeling Limited"), Paul Weitz ("About a Boy"), and John Strauss ("There's Something About Mary"); co-executive produced by Alex Timbers; and produced by Michael Zakin and Caroline Baron. Weitz and Coppola directed episodes, along with Bart Freundlich, Adam Brooks, Daryl Wein, Tricia Brock and Daisy Mayer.
