HBO Teases Mick Jagger-Martin Scorsese Rock Drama ‘Vinyl’

The new teaser for HBO’s “Vinyl” promises loud guitar, a lot of drugs and a lot of cash.

Set in 1970s New York, the series hails from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter. It tells the story of Richie Finestra (“Boardwalk Empire’s” Bobby Cannavale), a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.

In a Q&A session last week at the Television Critics Association summer tour, HBO president Michael Lombardo talked how much influence the Rolling Stones will have on the show — especially since Mick’s son, James Jagger, plays the lead singer of an early punk rock band called the Nasty Bits.

“(Rolling) Stones music will be in the series but not with any more frequency than any other music of the period,” said Lombardo. “Mick’s son is one of our series’ regulars. James is playing a young musician who looks not unlike his father. But the band has nothing to do with the Rolling Stones. Very different period. Very different trajectory.”

Vinyl” will premiere in 2016 on HBO.
