Sex & Drugs & 1970s: HBO previews upcoming Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger drama, ‘Vinyl’


Looks like we’ll all have a new favorite show in 2016.

Yesterday, HBO teased its new drama Vinyl, a collaborative effort between famed Hollywood legend Martin Scorsese, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, and writer/producer Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire, the Sopranos). The series is billed as rock drama that examines the sex, drugs, and rock and roll world of the music industry in the 1970s, and it already looks amazing.

Beyond that, no other information is really known, and there isn’t a definitive premiere date beyond the vague expectation of sometime next year.


While we cut a few lines and wait impatiently, fire up the minute-long preview below, soundtracked by the New York Dolls’ 1973 glam classic, “Personality Crisis.” And peep the brief Instagram preview that surfaced yesterday afternoon; the Vinyl profile is bound to have future updates first.

This is #Vinyl, a new @hbo series from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter. More coming your way this week.
