That untitled rock ’n’ roll show has been brewing since 2010 and was once expected to go into production in early 2014, but now HBO is finally ready to move forward with it. HBO just put in a series order for the drama, which stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a New York City record executive with a knack for discovering top talent. Martin Scorsese is set to direct the pilot episode and he’ll also be an executive producer alongside Mick Jagger, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, George Mastras and Terence Winter. Winter will also serve as showrunner. Hit the jump for more on the upcoming series including the complete cast lineup. The show is set in 1970s New York and will focus on the “drug and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out.” Cannavale will lead as Richie, the president of American Century Records who must make a life-altering decision. »

Prepare yourself for an A-list TV bomb! We are already obsessing about this just-announced new HBO show—Untitled Rock 'n' Roll Project—which has some pretty major star power behind it. Helmed by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger—yeah, you read that right!—the hour-long drama is going to star Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale and so many more awesome stars that we're already setting aside precious space on our DVR season pass list. And we are all about the plot, too. Set in 1970s New York (and the show will even shoot in NYC to get the feel of the city), the series will explore the drug- and sex-fueled rock and roll music business as punk and »
Set in gritty 1970s New York, the yet-to-be-titled rock 'n' roll drama pivots on the music business as punk and disco broke onto the scene. The series will star "Boardwalk Empire" Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record executive grappling with professional and existential crises while his wife, an erstwhile model/actress played by Olivia Wilde, yearns for the Bohemian life she lived in the 1960s. Also starring are Ray Romano as Zak Yankovich, a seasoned music industry vet with a dark mob-fueled past, and Juno Temple as a streetwise, rising star assistant with subcultural savvy. The series will revolve in and around the fictional American Century Records. The rest of the cast includes: Andrew “Dice” Clay; Ato Essandoh; Max Casella; James Jagger; Jack Quaid; Birgitte Sorenson; P.J. Byrne; J.C. MacKenzie; Bo Dietl; Robert Funaro and Joe Caniano.

HBO is getting back into business with Martin Scorsese. It was announced today that the network has ordered a new rock ‘n’ roll drama, which comes from the director, Breaking Bad‘s George Mastras, and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, to series. The still untitled 1970s drama focuses on “the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.” Bobby Cannavale (the infamous Gyp Rosetti from Season 3 of Boardwalk Empire) stars as Richie, “the founder and president of American Century Records, who has a great ear for discovering talent and who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision.” Olivia Wilde (whose most recent TV appearances include BoJack Horseman and Portlandia) stars as Richie’s wife, with Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond, Parenthood) set as one of Richie’s partners. »

Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger's drama about the '70s New York rock scene still doesn't have a title, but today it got something even better: a series order from HBO. Untitled Rock 'n' Roll Project will star Bobby Cannavale as the head of a floundering record label, Olivia Wilde as his bohemian wife, and Ray Romano as his rough-and-tumble business partner. Juno Temple, Andrew "Dice" Clay, and that guy from Wolf of Wall Street round out the cast. Terence Winter will serve as showrunner, bringing Boardwalk Empire's trademark blend of period flare and sad naked women to a new generation. Until this thing gets a title, we're just going to call it Punk-Rock Mad Men. »

Given Martin Scorsese’s attachment as executive producer and pilot director for his currently untitled rock and roll drama —Mick Jagger is also an executive producer— and his relationship with HBO, which ran “Boardwalk Empire” for five seasons (which Scorsese also exec-produced), it’s little surprise that the cable behemoth has picked up the show for a full series run. 'Boardwalk' showrunner and writer Terence Winter (who also wrote “The Wolf Of Wall Street”) will resume the same duties on this show. Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label with the next new sound. The show stars Bobby Cannavale (another “Boardwalk Empire” alum), Olivia Wilde, Juno Temple, Andrew “Dice” Clay, Ray Romano among others. HBO has released the names of the entire cast, »

HBO is finally moving forward with the much talked about rock 'n' roll show from Martin Scorsese. The untitled show has been sporadically in the news since 2010 and was expected to go into production early this year, but that obviously didn't happen. Better late than never I suppose, HBO just put in a series order for the drama, which stars Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, and Juno Temple just to name a few. The show is set in 1970s New York and »

HBO has greenlit-to-series a promising-sounding drama set in New York City's sex-and-drug-fueled music scene during the 1970s. The as-yet-untitled series reunites Boardwalk Empire showrunner Terence Winter and producer-director Martin Scorsese, who will helm the pilot. The cast includes Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Juno Temple and Andrew "Dice" Clay. The pitch: "Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore the drug-and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound." Like Boardwalk, the project gives Winter and Scorsese »

Set in 1970’s New York, the as yet untitled show will explore the drug and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound. The series is believed to have been given a nine-episode pickup.
The project has long been gestating at HBO. It marks the latest collaboration of Scorsese and Winter, following HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” and the Oscar-nommed feature “The Wolf of Wall Street.” “Boardwalk” ended its five-season run in October.
The hourlong drama will star Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a top-tier record label, American Century Records, with a great ear for discovering talent. Richie undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision. »

It wasn’t, perhaps, much of a surprise given that it had the backing of Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Boardwalk Empire creator/Wolf Of Wall Street writer Terence Winter, but HBO has ordered their new, still untitled rock ‘n’ roll drama to series, with Juno Temple, Ray Romano, Andrew Dice Clay, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, James Jagger and Jack Quaid all joining the cast.The new arrivals’ roles haven’t been specified, but the show will focus on Bobby Cannavale playing Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a label called American Century Records in 1970s New York. He’s flying high with a solid ear for finding new talent, but he undergoes a crisis of character when he has to make a life-altering decision.Olivia Wilde is playing Devon, a former actress and model that once lived a Bohemian life in the 1960s but has since devoted herself to family life. »
There's only four new episodes of Parenthood before we bid farewell to the Braverman family.
For six seasons the show has authentically portrayed the highs and lows of the Braverman clan and has managed to make everyone who watches it weep. From Max's (Max Burkholder) Asperger’s journey and Kristina's (Monica Potter) brave battle with cancer to Zeek's (Craig T. Nelson) heart scare and Amber's (Mae Whitman) surprise pregnancy, the writers have taken the fans on quite the emotional journey throughout the series run. But arguably no story line has been as divisive as Joel (Sam Jaeger) and Julia's (Erika Christensen) failing marriage this season.

Sarah Braverman's love life has been quite the rollercoaster ride ever since Parenthood started. She's made a few bad choices over the years (see also: dating her and her brother's boss and kissing her fresh-out-of-rehab ex-husband), but ever since Sarah (Lauren Graham) rekindled her romance with Hank (Ray Romano) at the end of Season 5, it appeared that the eldest Braverman daughter had finally settled down for good. But will that remain true when Sarah's former fiancé, the beloved Mark (Jason Ritter), comes back into her life on Thursday's episode...

He's ba-aaack! Rejoice Parenthood fans, Mark Cyr, played by the fantastic Jason Ritter, is back in Thursday's episode, and coming face-to-face with Sarah (Lauren Graham) for the first time since he told her he was engaged after she chose Hank (Ray Romano) over him. By her side when she runs into her ex? Hank, of course. But Hank's ex-wife Sandy, who has been around an awful lot lately, also happens to be standing by, and comments on "the hot English teacher" in our exclusive sneak peek at the Nov. 20 episode, "Lean In." "Are you waving to the hot English teacher?" Sandy asks Sarah as they are waiting for Ruby (Courtney Grosbeck) after the school play, and while Sarah »
A review of tonight's "Parenthood" coming up just as soon as I'm watching a keg and marijuana paraphernalia... One of the conditions of NBC giving "Parenthood" this final season was a reduced budget, which means every castmember has to miss at least a couple of episodes. Given that this is already a series that has more characters than time to properly service them, the forced vacations aren't in theory a bad thing, and there have been times this season where the show has juggled the absences well enough so they're not noticeable. "Aaron Brownstein Must Be Stopped" was not one of those times. Giving Joel and Julia the week off after the previous episode ended on Joel making a big dramatic gesture in front of Julia wasn't ideal, but their absence was one of the less egregious this week. (Zeek's would be the least, in that there wasn't an obvious »

A quick review of last night's "Parenthood" coming up just as soon as I object to the edited-for-tv version of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"... There's a lot I could talk about with "These Are the Times We Live In." I could discuss another great Sarah/Amber bonding scene, and about how poor Amber got stuck with extreme ends of the kid spectrum with relatively easy toddler Nora and... Max. I could talk about how much I enjoyed Hank joining Max in pacing around the kitchen, and then how good Ray Romano and Betsy Brandt were in the scene where Hank told Sandy he has Asperger's. (And also how the tables neatly turned by episode's end in terms of Sandy and/or Sarah feeling threatened by each other.) I could note that Natalie has turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to Drew. Or I could observe »

What happens when one of your favorite television shows visits another one of your favorite television shows? Magic, that’s what! There’s a certain feeling you get from finding out your favorite characters exist in the same fantasy world as another one of your favorite characters, like you’ve been let in on some very special little secret (never mind that everyone else watching is in on that secret, too).
While some shows have recurring crossover characters — like the wonderful sharing of Ursula Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) on Friends and Mad About You — others are just a one-off, like the appearance of the cast of St. Elsewhere on the classic sitcom, Cheers. More recently, Parenthood jumped over to About A Boy and The Simpsons and Family Guy met in an epic battle (although that’s not our favorite Simpsons cross over — you’ll see). All this, plus the time Ray Romano »

Ray Romano is going golfing with his wife's gynecologist, but he's doing it for a strategic reason. As he explained it on CBS's “The Late Late Show,” it's always worth the time to make friends with doctors once you're in your 50s or beyond. But Craig Ferguson wasn't so sure about the value in Romano befriending a gynecologist, and he was't alone. When she heard about his scheme, Romano's wife told him, “He can't help you.” See photos: 11 TV Shows Canceled by Controversy – From ‘Honey Boo Boo’ to ‘Politically Incorrect’ But Romano wasn't buying it. “After the first few inches, »
