Mozart In The Jungle, season 1

Although Godfather Coppola is not involved, it seems the whole clan shares the same filmic DNA; this is produced by a son and a nephew, and I loved it!

Absolutely adorable Gael Garc├Ča Bernal plays the newcoming passably eccentric maestro of the New York Philharmonic orchestra whom the plot evolves around. 
Pitfalls and stereotypes are avoided (sometimes by a hair), characters are elaborate and the dialogues sharp and witty. Full advantage is taken by the serial format which allows for multilayered personalities to be partially discovered by the viewer, which in turn renders unanticipated and out-of-character events almost as possible as in real life.

Interestingly, I find it problematic to pin down the exact genre of the show. 
It ranges from hilarious comedy to personal drama via your basic romcom.
Loved it!
