That untitled rock ’n’ roll show has been brewing since 2010 and was once expected to go into production in early 2014, but now HBO is finally ready to move forward with it. HBO just put in a series order for the drama, which stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a New York City record executive with a knack for discovering top talent.
Martin Scorsese is set to direct the pilot episode and he’ll also be an executive producer alongside Mick Jagger, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, George Mastras and Terence Winter. Winter will also serve as showrunner. Hit the jump for more on the upcoming series including the complete cast lineup.
