HBO has released the first trailer of its upcoming period drama series Vinyl, which shows the world of the rock and roll music industry in 1970s New York City.
Martin Scorsese directed the pilot and is the executive producer alongside producer Mick Jagger, Terence Winter, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff and George Mastras.
HBO has also revealed the synopsis of the series, which reads as follows:
From Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, this new 10-episode drama series is set in 1970s New York. A ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.
Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire) stars as Richie, the founder and president of American Century Records, who has a great ear for discovering talent and who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision.
Olivia Wilde stars as Richie's wife, with Parenthood's Ray Romano set as one of Richie's partners. The cast also includes Juno Temple, Andrew Dice Clay, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, James Jagger, Jack Quaid, Birgitte Hjort Sorensen, PJ Byrne, JC MacKenzie, Bo Dietl, Armen Garo, Robert Funaro and Joe Caniano.
HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said, "It takes place in '72. So by then, the [Rolling] Stones were already wealthy and but there is — in fact, you will see a different band. Stones music will be in the series but not with any more frequency than any other music of the period.
"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. So no, this is not a story of the Rolling Stones or Mick Jagger, although you will see someone in the series that looks startlingly close to Mick," Lombardo added.
HBO is set to debut the series in 2016.
