Mozart in the Jungle S01E01 Still - H 2014

Conducting classical music is not just fun and games in the first trailer for Amazon's Mozart in the Jungle.

Gael Garcia Bernal stars in the dramedy series about the behind-the-scenes drama at a major symphony. Famed conductor Rodrigo (Bernal) is brought in to enliven the orchestra, but trouble manages to follow him, due in part to his eye for the ladies.

The trailer promises emotional scenes as well as frisky ones, as Rodrigo delivers harsh news to an aspiring oboist. "I put you on that stage, and you are not ready," he tells the tearful musician.
