The 10-episode season’s two-hour premiere was directed by Scorsese, from a teleplay by Terence Winter and George Mastras, and a story by Rich Cohen and Mick Jagger.

Starring Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record label president who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path, the first season of also features Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger and Paul Ben-Victor.

The show uses real people, played by actors, to bulwark its fictional world. Andy Warhol, Roger Daltrey, Johnny Thunders, and Alice Cooper make appearances, and the soundtrack uses a soundtrack borrowed from Janis Joplin, Little Richard, and Howlin’ Wolf.
