Review: HBO's 'Vinyl' a classic rock drama that wishes it was punk

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HBO's new drama Vinyl is set at a crossroads for the music industry in which its hero, drug-addicted record label president Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale), works. It's 1973, when some of the iconic rock acts of the '60s were still vital — including The Rolling Stones, whose Mick Jagger co-created Vinyl alongside Boardwalk Empire's Terence Winter, director Martin Scorsese, and author Rich Cohen — but were having to make room for new artists and new styles of music. In Sunday's pilot episode, Richie tries to cut a deal with Led Zeppelin, but is also entranced by a live performance of The New York Dolls' punk anthem "Personality Crisis," and intrigued when he drives through the Bronx and overhears hip-hop pioneer DJ Kool Herc spinning two records at once. But for all that Richie is obsessed with finding something new and exciting — "I Want What's Next!" he screams to his terrified »

TV Review: ‘Vinyl’

9 February 2016 7:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Vinyl” comes outfitted with such a gaudy band and intoxicating setting – reuniting the “Boardwalk Empire” pairing of Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese, coupled with producer Mick Jagger, star Bobby Cannavale and a 1970s rock ’n’ roll backdrop – that it’s hard not to root for it. The two-hour premiere, though, is a big, messy affair, sometimes mesmerizing, occasionally aggravating, providing a taste of what’s to come while feeling too caught up in stylistic flourishes. All told, this is a huge project that perhaps only HBO could deliver. But so far, the album isn’t quite as good as the liner notes.

Cannavale plays Richie Finestra, a record executive who is introduced at his wit’s end, buying coke on the street and snorting it up with gusto. His frantic situation unleashes a series of flashbacks, not just regarding what brought him to this point, but to his early days in the music business, »

What happens when Mick Jagger visits a TV show writers room?

9 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Bobby Cannavale turned up midway through the run of Terence Winter's HBO gangster epic Boardwalk Empire, the most surprising thing was that they somehow hadn't worked together before, whether on earlier Boardwalk seasons or during Winter's long run as David Chase's top lieutenant on The Sopranos. The half-Italian, half-Cuban actor has been no stranger to crime stories in his career (including a role on NBC's would-be Sopranos drama Kingpin), but the Boardwalk role of animalistic sociopath Gyp Rosetti (for which he would win an Emmy) was his first time working with Winter, and also with Boardwalk executive producer Martin Scorsese. Now, all three men have teamed up with, of all people, Mick Jagger, for Vinyl, HBO's new Sunday drama, where Cannavale plays Richie Finestra, a '70s record company executive with a great ear and a nose too prone to having cocaine shoved up it.

5 February 2016 4:24 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We like it, like it, yes we do! Vinyl airs Sundays at 9/8Ct on HBO beginning Feb. 14.

Since 1995, Jagger had mulled a feature film that would delve deep into what he knew best: the gritty reality of the music … Continue reading →

The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s funny,” says Adam McKay — the Oscar-nominated co-writer and director of The Big Short who heretofore was known for the raunchy comedies he made with Will Ferrell, such as Anchorman and Talladega Nights — as we sit down in his guest house to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “The whole time we were making the movie I never thought of it as, ‘I’m doing something different.’ You just chase the movie, is kind of all you do. But there’s no question we’re thrilled with the reaction it’s getting.”

A Number of Big Names are Behind Some of this Year’s Oscar Nominees

3 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

This year’s Oscar race features many familiar faces, such as last year’s best director Alejandro G. Inarritu or last year’s best actor Eddie Redmayne, both of whom are repeat nominees in the same category.

However, what may surprise many is the number of big names behind many of this year’s nominees.

Taking a look at some of this year’s executive producers (people not necessarily involved in the making of a film but helped to finance the production), a number of names that may be surprising were hard at work behind the scenes.

Paul Allen, who co-founded Microsoft alongside Bill Gates, owns the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers, and is estimated to be the 51st richest man in the world, had a hand in producing one of this year’s best documentary short nominees, Body Team 12, about a team tasked »

Who knew Kanye West's Twitter could offer so much insight? (Excluding Kanye, of course.)

TCA Winter Press Tour 2016: Reboots, Reunions and Steven Avery

21 January 2016 12:57 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that a few days have passed since journalists and critics have decamped from Pasadena, Calif. for the annual two-week grind of Television Critics Association winter press tour, Variety‘s TV team has taken stock of the most noteworthy trends.

Sean Penn’s El Chapo interview grabbed headlines, as did his sitdown with Charlie Rose — along with any mention of Donald Trump, “Making A Murderer,” and unintended cast reunions. (No, the “Friends” cast is not getting back together.) But nothing occupied TCA as much as a report on Netflix’s ratings in a presentation by NBC research president Alan Wurtzel — which Netflix chief Ted Sarandos handily dismissed in his exec session as “remarkably inaccurate.”

And then, of course, there was all the usual chatter about “Peak TV,” which has now hit a high of 412 scripted series.

Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese Revive the 1970s New York Music Biz in HBO’s ‘Vinyl’

16 January 2016 11:57 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At last night’s New York premiere for “Vinyl” — HBO’s upcoming series about the 1970s New York music industry — P.J. Byrne, who plays the wildly-groomed music lawyer Scott Leavitt, told Variety that he has very strict requirements for the roles he accepts.

“I like to work with a minimum of two icons before I show up on set,” he said with a smile, referring to the show’s executive producers. “To have the great Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter — who, if he’s not an icon now, will be one shortly — those guys were a wealth of knowledge.

“Growing up in the ’70s in New Jersey, New York was this scary place of dreams,” he added. “And now to be a part of this world and tell that story is exciting. And also to have mutton chops.”

Scorsese directed the two-hour premiere that screened with his signature full-throttle flourish, »
