Mick Jagger is one of the forces behind a new HBO series about the music business in the 1970s. The Hollywood Reporter says the network has picked up the drama, which is also being executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter, and George Mastras.
Scorsese and Winter previously teamed up on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," while Mastras worked on AMC's award-winning drama "Breaking Bad."
The new show is centered around the drug and sex fueled music business as punk and disco were beginning to take over. The still-untitled project stars another "Boardwalk Empire" vet, Bobby Cannavale, as a record executive trying to save his label with the next new sound.
The cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Juno Temple, Andrew "Dice" Clay, and more. Scorsese directed the pilot, which features a script penned by Winter and Mastras. A premiere date for the show has yet to be determined.
