HBO series Vinyl, a bawdy look at the music business at the intersection of disco, rap and punk rock, will premiere Feb. 14 in the Sunday-9 p.m. slot. The premiere will fill two hours.
Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter is Vinyl's showrunner and, along with Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, John Melfi and Allen Coulter, is also executive producer.
Vinyl has a 10-episode first season. HBO describes it as “a ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco and hip-hop … seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale.”
A week later, comedy pair Girls and Togetherness debut, starting at 10 p.m. on Feb. 21. Read more at broadcastingcable.com.
Separately, HBO announced it has canceled the Jack Black-Tim Robbins comedy series The Brink.
