Set in the Seventies, New HBO Drama Series "Vinyl" Promises "Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll"

If the voice-over intro to the trailer below (or rather "teaser") for the forthcoming television series Vinyl reminds you of the Goodfellas monologue by Ray Liotta's character Henry Hill in the iconic crime/gangster film's opening, that's perhaps because the 2016 HBO drama-series is also from Martin Scorsese who directed that popular 1990 film. In this new production Scorsese, along with Mick Jagger and Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire creator), are the ones behind this new HBO show that is set in the 1970s and delves into all the drama and excesses of the rock and roll lifestyle that was personified in that decadent decade. The cast of this upcoming series is listed as Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, Paul Ben-Victor and (Mick's son) James Jagger. Based on this short trailer alone that was uploaded to YouTube in the past week and shows some familiar faces playing key roles (plus the music of the New York Dolls), I am pretty sure that this will be another HBO series worth watching each week, likely on Sunday nights when their best shows first air. For updates and more teases on this series go to the Vinyl Facebook page and the HBO website page dedicated to the show.
