Amazon Bought a Comedy Pilot From Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman

Amazon Studios is launching its two new series, Alpha House and Betas, next year, but the streaming service has already ordered three new comedy pilots. The first, Mozart in the Jungle, is written by Roman Coppola and will star Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers. The show is based on the memoir of oboist Blair Tindall, and "is all about sex, drugs and classical music," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Coppola, who co-wrote The Darjeeling Limited and Moonrise Kingdom with Wes Anderson, wrote and directed Charles Swan solo. It stars Charlie Sheen as a partyin', womanizing graphic designer (a character that's surprisingly not based on Sheen in any way). Schwartzman and Murray play supporting roles as Sheen's comedian best friend and accountant, respectively.

Variety writes that "Swan is more of a doodle than a fully formed idea, though [...]
