Daisy Jones & The Six
Daisy Jones & The Six is a screen adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s best-selling novel of the same name. The series will follow the unbelievable rise and fall of a fictional ’70s rock band. According to the official synopsis, “Daisy Jones & the Six follows the story of the iconic 1970s band, fronted by two feuding yet charismatic lead singers, Daisy Jones, and Billy Dunne. Drawn together by personal and artistic chemistry, their complicated musical partnership catapulted the band from obscurity to unbelievable fame. And then, after a sold-out show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they suddenly called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members finally agree to reveal the truth. Set to the soundtrack of original music from the Daisy Jones & the Six—this is the story of how an iconic band imploded at the height of its powers.” So, it seems like the tell-all we wish we could get from every band that has decided to call it quits.
