Video: Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese Launch Rock TV Drama
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and famed movie director Martin Scorsese have teamed up to create a new rock and roll television drama. The show is called Vinyl and will follow the life of a 1970s record label exec.
The pair have just released the first trailer for the show (see video below).
The nine-part fictional series will air in 2016 on HBO in the States and features Jagger’s son James in a part as punk-rocker Kip Stevens, the singer of fictional punk outfit Nasty Bits.
Vinyl will also feature actors Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Andrew ‘Dice’ Clay and P.J. Byrne. Although the script is almost certainly drawn in part from Jagger’s experiences in the music industry, there is no word of Jagger actually appearing in the show at this point..
However, other rock stars will be portrayed in the show, including Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Otis Redding, Bo Diddley, and Elton John.
Jagger and Scorsese are listed as Executive Producers, and Scorsese will direct the pilot episode.
