When HBO said it was developing a pilot with Martin Scorsese, we all sat up and listened intently. Beyond the strains of distant rock’n’roll, however, details were sketchy at best. There is still no known title for the project, but it continues to take shape – now adding Ray Romano to its intriguing mix. The 1970s-set drama will be executive produced by Scorsese, Mick Jagger, George Mastras and Terence Winter – with Scorsese directing, and Winter (Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos) penning the script.

We now know the show will focus on music executive Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale), following his desperate attempts to discover the ‘next big thing’ in the drug-addled recording industry of 1970s New York City. Olivia Wilde and Juno Temple are already confirmed to co-star, along with Max Casella from Inside Llewyn Davis. The production is aiming for an early summer start.
