Netflix’s new original series “Soundtrack” comes Dec. 17 with an immensely talented group of performers. Before the show premieres later this month, get to know who some of these multifaceted artists are and where you may have seen them before. 

Josh Safran, who previously worked as a showrunner on “Gossip Girl,” is behind the drama project with some very adult themes and highly talented performers. The first look at this group came with the official trailer, where a nice mix of both familiar faces and newcomers showcased everything they’ll be bringing to the series. 

Right at the beginning of the trailer, viewers meet Samson Hughes (portrayed by Paul James), as he reveals what appears to be the overall theme of the series: “Every song is a love song.” James has a career that has spanned 15 years in Hollywood, which has included a recurring role on the Hulu original series “The Path,” and the popular ABC Family series, “Greek.”

From there, we are introduced to protagonist Nellie O’Brien, portrayed by Callie Hernandez. Our introduction to the character sees the “La La Land” actress singing along to Sia’s “Elastic Heart,” before she begins to discuss love with her friend, Gigi Durmon (portrayed by Megan Ferguson). Ferguson is another actress who has been a part of several projects, including a recurring role on the CW’s “Hart of Dixie,” as well as appearances in “The Disaster Artist” and “The Fundamentals of Caring.”

We also meet Dante Mendoza (Jahmil French, who was previously featured in “Degrassi: The Next Generation”)  and fellow actor Isaiah Givens, who is an up-and-coming child star, making only his second on-screen appearance overall in “Soundtrack.”

Academy Award nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste and award-winning actor and director Campbell Scott are also seen, as is Madeleine Stowe, of “The Last of the Mohicans,” “12 Monkeys” and “Revenge” fame. Stowe portrays Margot Weston, who appears to be some kind of motherly figure to Nellie in a phone conversation.
