Famed director Martin Scorsese and veteran writer Terence Winter have already teamed up once this year. They worked together on the new HBO series Boardwalk Empire which is set to premiere this fall. Now The Playlist brings us news that the two will be collaborating on another show for HBO, the show will be called History of Music.
Also on board for History of Music is Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, who worked with Scorsese on Shine A Light. The series will revolve around two friends who work in the music industry across 40 years. Winter will be writing while Jagger and Scorsese produce.
This project is sure to be successful. Firstly, HBO is behind it and HBO shows are always superb (The Sopranos, The Wire, Oz, Entourage). Secondly, Scorsese and Winter are both incredibly talented individuals in their respective fields and they have already teamed up once for Boardwalk Empire (which looks great). Lastly, the show will have Mick Jagger executive producing and he certainley knows his music.
History of Music has a lot of potential and I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
