Following the success of Boardwalk Empire, Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter are once again partnering on a new HBO series titled Vinyl. 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 Rolling Stones band member Mick Jagger will also be joining Scorsese and Winter on the show as a producer, and Scorsese will once again helm the pilot. Though not much else is known about the series yet, we can only assume based on Winter’s track record, that it will be well worth watching. Plus it promises an amazing soundtrack at the very least.
Bobby Canavale stars as Richie Finestra, a record label president on the brink, with Olivia Wilde as his ex-wife Devon, and Ray Romano as the Head of Promotions for the label. The series also features Juno Temple, Andrew “Dice” Clay, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, James Jagger, Jack Quaid, Brigitte Hjort Sorenson, and P.J. Byrne. While a premiere date has yet to be announced, HBO has said the show will make its premiere in 2016, and after releasing a short tease the network has now released the first trailer which looks great! Think back at the first time you heard a song and the hairs on the back of your neck stood up. Now watch the trailer below. Enjoy!
