Between the last season of Game of Thrones and the current season of True Detective, many of us have found our HBO love to be wilting a bit. Add to that the return of the uber-bleak The Leftovers, and the days of Veep and really anything with even a modicum of lightness seem so very long ago.
So the new trailer for Vinyl is a welcome kickstart of excitement. The show, which is a collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger that’s been in the works for years, just got its title and a quick Instagram teaser earlier this week.
Looks fun, right? Or, well, maybe “fun” is the wrong word, but… boisterously destructive? It’s chock full of lips, drugs and rock & roll. The show, which also comes from Terence Winter (Boardwalk, The Sopranos) is a behind-the-scenes look at the 1970s rock industry. Today, HBO released its first full trailer and oh man does it look great. It’s the all-caps version of a trailer: DRUGS. MUSIC. CONFETTI. SMASHING THINGS. BOBBY CANNAVALE. MORE DRUGS.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t come out until sometime next year. In the meantime, isn’t it about time for a Westworld trailer, HBO?
