Watch the Trailer for Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese’s TV Show ‘Vinyl’
HBO will premiere Vinyl, a series about the New York music scene in the '70s that's co-produced by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, in January. The network has unveiled a full-length trailer for the show, which you can watch above.
"Think back to the first time you heard a song that made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up," says Bobby Cannavale, who stars as label head Richie Finestra, in a voiceover. "Made you want to dance or go out and kick somebody's ass. That's what I'm talking about."
Then the familiar riff of the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog" kicks in as Finestra tells his charges that he wants them to find "new, fresh, fast, exciting" acts. Shots of all sorts of decadence then follow, with Cannavale doing some Al Pacino-level scenery chewing.
HBO's website calls Vinyl "a ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop. The show is seen through the eyes of a record label president ... who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path."
In addition to Cannavale, Vinyl stars Olivia Wilde as his wife, Ray Romano as his partner and Andrew "Dice" Clay as a radio executive. If the singer of the punk band looks a little too much like a real rock star, there's a good reason for that: He's James Jagger, Mick's 30-year-old son.
