Martin Scorsese is delivering a dose of sex, drugs and rock and roll to HBO in the new year, and he’s bringing Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde and Ray Romano along for the ride.
A trailer for the upcoming Scorsese-directed HBO series Vinyl has been released, and it looks incredible.
The show, which was created by Wolf Of Wall Street screenwriter and Boardwalk Empire mastermind Terrence Winter, follows ’70s record label president named Richie Finestra (Cannavale). And so the story goes: he’s trying to save his floundering company during the rise of punk and disco, while staying heavily immersed in an industry consumed by sex, drugs and what appears to be a lot of filth.
The trailer plays like a rock and roll rendition of Wolf Of Wall Street, which is totally OK with us.
Olivia Wilde stars as Richie’s wife Devon, and an almost unrecognizable Ray Ramono plays Zak Yankvich, Richie’s confidant at the label (no relation to Weird Al we’re told.)
The show is produced by Scorsese, Winter and Mick Jagger, so you know it won’t skimp on the sex and drugs.
Watch the trailer for Vinyl above. There’s a good chance it will be your favourite show in the not-so-distant future.
Vinyl premieres on HBO Canada in January.
