HBO ORDERS ROCK PROJECT FROM MARTIN SCORSESE
HBO has given a series order to a Rock ‘n Roll-themed drama from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter.
The project has been in the works since 2010.
According to Deadline, the show is set in 1970s New York and explores the drug and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive played by Bobby Cannavale. He is trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.
The series also stars Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, and Juno Temple.
