We’ve been watching this trailer for a while, and finally this new TV show is running. It premiered on HBO this morning, US time 14th February night time. Of course the talking point is all about the crew behind the scene, the story is created by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, together with Rich Cohen and Terence Winter. This idea was first suggested by Jagger to Scorsese, in 1996. And Mick Jagger’s son, James is actually playing a role in this TV series.
I was actually not so aware of all these stories behind, I was just watching the show, but then I started to google it and found out all these interesting stories behind. It is nice to have all those information. For example, I feel those sex and drugs scenes remind me of “The wolf of wall street”. Here you go, one of the creator, Terence Winter, who wrote “The wolf of wall street” and of course Scorsese is the director! OK, I got it! It is definitely a nice show to watch, the first episode is 2 hours long and is directed by Martin Scorsese. The funny thing is, each episode is directed by different director. For the time being, they have 5 episodes line-up, but not sure who else are going to direct the rest of those 5, as there will be 10 episodes in total. But according to the information, Scorsese already confirmed to do one more episode.
Since it is a show about music and record company, of course there will be a lot of nice music playing in the show. Don’t worry! Atlantic Records and Warner Bros Records will release the music and they are going to do the weekly releases of digital EPs on iTunes. Of course you can imagine a huge amount of money was spent on the music right, and believed to be more than 6 figures per episode!
