HBO rolling with ‘Stoned’

Network options rights to Oldham biography

HBO is developing a comedy loosely inspired by the memoirs of former Rolling Stones producer and manager Andrew Loog Oldham.

The pay cabler has optioned the rights to two volumes of Oldham’s biography, “Stoned” and “2Stoned.”

Feature scribe Wesley Strick is penning the script. Oldham and Lou Adler, another music impresario, will exec produce along with Strick.

Project is described as a fictional account of a young man living the high life with artists and hipsters in London’s vibrant Soho scene in the early 1960s.

Oldham worked as a pop music press agent in London before he befriended the up-and-coming Stones in 1963. He produced the band’s early recordings, including signature hits “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Get Off of My Cloud” and “Ruby Tuesday,” and he served as the group’s co-manager until 1967.

In 1965, Oldham founded the indie record label Immediate, which was home to early recordings of the Small Faces, Rod Stewart, Fleetwood Mac and Humble Pie.

Strick’s credits include the upcoming reboot of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” franchise for New Line Cinema.
