HBO's "Vinyl," the new series from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, released a first trailer Sunday. Of note here (beyond those credits): Parts of this will be shot on Long Island.

Here's the logline from HBO...

"From Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, this new drama series is set in 1970s New York. A ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path..."

And just to answer the question everyone will ask -- no, the Mickster is NOT starring, which is too bad, because he IS a good actor. Series arrives this January.
