(Bobby Cannavale)

Imagine an age of rock and roll, when it ruled the airwaves. When punk, disco and hip-hop were on the horizon, and the 1970s was the place to be. This month M-Net Edge brings you that time, with the HBO series Vinyl.

Veteran director and producer Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street) and rock star Mick Jagger team up with acclaimed producer and screenwriter Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), for an explosive music drama following the sex and drug addled music business in 1970s New York.

Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire, Nurse Jackie) stars as Richie Finestra, a music exec determined to revive his ailing record label. Unstable, unpredictable and armed with a vision, Finestra embarks on an epic hustle through the changing music scene, one that’s quickly becoming as diverse as the era itself.

Olivia Wilde (Rush), Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Ato Essandoh (Elementary, Blue Bloods) and Juno Temple (Atonement) also star. “Put on your shades and crop tops, it’s going to be a heck of a ride,: says M-Net Edge!
