Great News music fans! Vinyl is an upcoming American television drama created by Terence Winter (the creator, writer and executive producer of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire series). Winter also worked on season 6 and 7 of The Sopranos and wrote the screenplay for Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf on Wall Street – the film was nominated for an Academy Award for best adaptive screenplay.
Vinyl will premiere on HBO in January 2016. The show’s pilot was written by Winter and directed by Martin Scorsese. The first season will consist of 10 episodes. Vinyl tells the story of a New York music executive in the late 1970’s who hustles to make a career out of the city’s diverse music scene.
The show will feature performances by Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), Olivia Wilde (House MD), Ray Romano,
Ato Essandoh, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger, Paul Ben-Victor and others. Judging by the trailer below, it looks like it could be one of must see shows of 2016.
So what do you think? Does Vinyl get a thumbs up or a thumbs down? I don’t know about you guys and girls, but I can’t wait to see this.
