"Mozart in the Jungle," starring three-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters, is one of four pilots that Amazon Studios has chosen for a series order. All ten episodes are set to premiere on Dec. 23 exclusively on Prime Instant Video. The cast and celebrity guests turned out for a Dec. 2 premiere event held at Alice Tully Hall.
Based on Blair Tindall's memoir, "Mozart" is billed as such: "Sex, drugs — and classical music — what happens behind the curtains at the symphony can be just as captivating as what happens on stage."
