HBO is reportedly very close to committing to a new series about a fictional record executive in the late Seventies being developed by Mick Jagger, Martin Scorcese and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter. The untitled show, originally conceived by Jagger as a concept for a feature film, already has a pilot script penned by Winter, who has experience with HBO dating back to his days as one of the core writers for The Sopranos.

This project is not the only premium cable show in the works focused on record executives. HBO optioned a series based on Jennifer Egan’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel A Visit From the Goon Squad, which prominently features characters working in the music industry, and Showtime is developing a program called Vinyl, which is set in the record industry of the Seventies.
