A TV series about the Rolling Stones‘ early years is currently in the making. Left Bank Pictures, which produced Netflix‘s “The Crown” and Starz‘ “Outlander,” is producing the series for the FX network.
According to FX CEO John Landgraf, the network is in advanced talks with the rockers for the project.
“High Fidelity” author Nick Hornby is writing the series, which will focus on the band’s earliest days up through 1972, during which they came out with hits such as Their Satanic Majesties Request, Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street.
Rolling Stones have allowed the producers to use the band’s music in the program.
Deadline says the yet-to-be-titled two-season deal will be a “high-end series.”
In 2016, the band’s lead singer Mick Jagger had co-created “Vinyl” with Martin Scorsese, Rich Cohen and Terence Winter. The series, which starred Bobby Cannavale, ran on HBO.
