Vinyl, the new HBO series from Martin Scorsese – teaming up with Mick Jagger – dropped a little teaser trailer via Instagram today. If you need any more motivation to watch Vinyl next year aside from the names “Scorsese” and “Jagger,” well, here you go:
Here is the official synopsis for the project as well:
Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.
The great Bobby Cannavale will return to HBO in Vinyl, this time in the starring role as record exec Richie Finestra. In addition, the series will feature the work of Olivia Wilde as his wife, Ray Romano, Juno Temple, Andrew “Dice Clay, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, James Jagger, Jack Quaid, Brirgitte Hjort Sorenson, and P.J. Byrne.
Vinyl should be another grand slam for HBO, their second collaboration with Martin Scorsese on the heels of Boardwalk Empire ending it’s run last year. This is most certainly not the first team up between Mick Jagger and Scorsese as well. Aside from the rock-doc Shine a Light, Scorsese uses Rolling Stones tunes on the reg for his films.
Vinyl will debut on HBO some time in 2016; no date has been set.
