Vinyl is a new HBO drama series set in 1970s New York from producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter. A ride through the music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.
The crew was here on 8th Street this past fall filming at the world famous Electric Lady Studios, and were creating quite a buzz around the neighborhood. The series premieres in January and advance word is good, but what else would you expect from the producer of Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos?
Additional series regulars include Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger and Paul Ben-Victor. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, Terence Winter, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, John Melfi and Allen Coulter.
