HBO has released the first trailer for the new drama series Vinyl, from Boardwalk Empire creator/executive producer Terence Winter and executive producers Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger. The talent level behind the scenes alone should have you excited for this show, but if not, the new trailer might just get you hooked with its fast-paced and aggressive display of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. And if the teaser left you wanting more, keep your eyes peeled for an extended trailer for the series that was screened for TCA, which may or may not make its way out into the public.
Set in 1970s New York, Vinyl is told through the eyes of record executive Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) who is trying to keep his label alive as punk and disco are on the rise. Olivia Wilde plays his former actress/model wife Devon; Ray Romano stars as Richie’s partner Zak Yankovich, the Head of Promotions for the label; and Juno Temple fills the role of Jamie Vine, an ambitious assistant in the A&R department with aspirations of breaking through the glass ceiling.
Watch the trailer below, via HBO. The series will debut in 2016 and also stars Andrew “Dice” Clay, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, James Jagger, Jack Quaid, Brirgitte Hjort Sorenson, and P.J. Byrne.
Here’s the official logline for Vinyl:
Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.
