HBO has placed a series order for a high-profile drama project from legendary director Martin Scorsese, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and “Sopranos” writer and executive producer Terence Winter, Variety reports.
“Set in 1970s New York, the as yet untitled show 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,” the publication reports.
The project, which has been in the works at the pay-cable channel for some time, reunites “Boardwalk Empire” and “Wolf of Wall Street” collaborators Scorsese and Winter.
Variety notes that Bobby Cannavale will star as record label founder Richie Finestra, with Olivia Wilde playing his wife and Ray Romano as one of Richie’s partners. Among the actors also on board are Juno Temple, Andrew “Dice” Clay and James Jagger.
