Now here we go again, you say you want your TV show. Well, who is Amazon to hold you back? Daisy Jones and the Six, an upcoming Prime Video series, will follow a fictional, dramatic ’70s rock band partly inspired by Fleetwood Mac. The show is based on a book of the same name, written by The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo author Taylor Jenkins Reid. The novel was released in 2017 and was chosen based on a copy the married couple and executive producers Scott Neustadter and Lauren Levy Neustadter read before its release. Then production was stopped due to the pandemic, which explains the wait, for Vanity Room. The series is also an EP by Reese Witherspoon through his studio Hello Sunshine, with Scott Neustadter co-creating the show alongside Michael H. Weber as well as co-showrunning alongside Will Graham.

The first teaser promises: “Their music made them famous. Their breakup made them legends. Based on our first good look at the show, it adapts the book’s oral history format into a version of a music documentary. “Listen, I know I said I’d tell you everything,” incumbent Daisy said. “But how much of everything do you really want to know?” Below is all the info I have To do Want to know.

The book the series faithfully adapts follows the titular Daisy as she navigates the 70s rock scene. She joins the fictional band The Six, fronted by Billy Dunne. The two, alongside the rest of their bandmates and Billy’s girlfriend, Camila, navigate interpersonal conflict, musical strife, and substance abuse.

The story seems to follow more or less the same plot as the original book. Their goal was to “figure out how to make the experience of watching it the same as the one we had when we read it,” the creators told vanity lounge. This mainly meant keeping the same structure as the book while condensing the framing device, which focuses on the band members looking at their youth from the future, up to 20 years old.

Daisy Jones will be played by Riley Keough, a descendant of a certain Elvis Presley. Billy Dunne is played by Finnick Odair’s Sam Claflin. Keough and Claflin said vanity lounge that they spent a lot of time learning how to tune themselves to play these rockers. Keough learned to belt, while Claflin learned both how to play rhythm guitar and that “Come Together” isn’t by Michael Jackson. Other cast members include Suki Waterhouse as Karen, Sebastian Chacon as Warren, Josh Whitehouse as Eddie, and Will Harrison as Graham. Camila Morrone will play the fictional Camila, while Timothy Olyphant will play Rod Reyes, Tom Wright will play Teddy Price and Nabiyah Be will play Simone Jackson.

Of course, it looks like it, huh! But no, it’s not the Fleetwood Mac bio-series you were dreaming of. He’s definitely inspired by this iconic band (and their iconic album Rumors), as well as the general rock scene of the time, but Daisy Jones and the Six were their own thing. If you want to see Fleetwood Mac talk about their whole situation, respect their behind the music episode.

Blake Mills and Tony Berg wrote much of the original music for the fictional band, which includes songs mentioned in the book like “Regret Me” and “Aurora”. “It feels pretty fresh and doesn’t feel like acting,” Neustadter said. Vanity Room. These songs will also include lyrics written in the book. The soundtrack will be released on Atlantic Records.

If you’re ready to have a blast with your Six out, you’ll have to queue. The series premieres on Prime Video on March 3, with new episodes weekly every Friday. For now, all we have is this very tease-y teaser. Sex, drugs and streaming services.
