Multi-Golden Globe Award-Winning Amazon Original Series "Mozart in the Jungle" Renewed for Third Season

Amazon's Prime Video is the first content provider in a decade to win Best Musical or Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series in back-to-back years for different shows

SEATTLE -- Feb. 9, 2016 -- (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced the multi-Golden Globe award-winning series, Mozart in the Jungle, has been renewed for a third season. Starring Gael García Bernal (Salt and Fire), who was awarded the Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series, and Lola Kirke (Gone Girl), Mozart in the Jungle will begin production later this year and will continue the story of the talented musicians who perform and live with passion under the baton of its spirited conductor, best known simply as Rodrigo. Executive Produced by Roman Coppola (Moonrise Kingdom), Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited) and Paul Weitz (About a Boy), season three will see Rodrigo and many musicians take their talents to Europe.

The win for Mozart in the Jungle brings Amazon's total number of Golden Globe awards to four, following last year's double win for Transparent in the same categories. It also makes Prime Video the first content provider in a decade to win Best Musical or Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series in back-to-back years for different shows.

"Mozart in the Jungle bursts with creativity and passion, and offers audiences something truly unique," said Joe Lewis, Head of Half Hour Series, Amazon Studios. "Amazon is proud to have two of the most risky and enthralling comedy series on television today."

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. Along with Bernal and Kirke, Mozart in the Jungle also stars Saffron Burrows (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Malcolm McDowell (The Mentalist), Bernadette Peters (Smash), Hannah Dunne (Frances Ha) and Schwartzman.

Schwartzman, on behalf of his fellow executive producers Coppola and Weitz, said, "We're grateful to Amazon for endowing our orchestra with another season. We can't wait to follow our characters through the vast world of music, whether performing on a subway platform or in the grand concert halls of Europe."

Seasons 1 and 2 of Mozart in the Jungle are available for Prime members at no additional cost to their membership, through the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/mozartinthejungle.
