Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger have joined forces to produce the forthcoming HBO drama series, Vinyl.
Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire) stars as Richie Finestra – a drug addicted record executive struggling to work in the 1970s. As disco and punk begin to rise from the New York underground, Finestra desperately tries to relaunch his record label.
The show is also set to star Juno Temple (Wild Child, The Dark Knight Rises), Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Olivia Wilde (The O.C.), Andrew Dice Clay (The Adventures of Ford Fairlane) and Birgitte Sorenson (Chicago, Borgen). Jagger’s son, James has also been cast within the show, fronting as the lead singer for the fictional punk band, Nasty Bits.
Scorsese and Jagger are executive producers on the series, and have previously worked together on the 2008 Rolling Stones documentary, Shine A Light. The series has been created by Terence Winter (the writer-producer behind Boardwalk Empire), with the pilot episode to be directed by Scorsese himself.
Vinyl‘s ten episode run is set to debut at some point in 2016. Watch the first teaser below.
