Ever since the screen cut to black on The Sopranos finale two-and-a-half years ago, it seems like creator David Chase has been hiding in that darkness. Early last year, he poked his head out to let us know about two projects he’s working on. For HBO, Chase plans to chronicle the history of the Hollywood with miniseries A Ribbon of Dreams. A couple months earlier, Chase mentioned another project to EW, saying only “it is about rock ‘n’ roll.” Otherwise, mum was the word.
Now via THR, we have a bit more information on that latter project. It is a coming-of-age saga that follows the formative stages of a rock band in the 1960s. Still not a lot to go on, but it’s good to know the man that brought us Tony Soprano will eventually return to storytelling. Even better that he’s working in the realm of music, as The Sopranos had a frequently amazing soundtrack. I’ll leave you with the final scene and its memorable use of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”, after the spoiler-filled jump.
