Fans of the best-selling book Daisy Jones & The Six (or any of Taylor Jenkins Reid‘s cult novels, for that matter) should make sure their Amazon subscriptions are in order, because the story is officially being made into a star-studded TV show that’s coming soon to Prime Video.
The streamer announced the news with some first-look pictures of the cast and a release date—more on that later—with Reese Witherspoon confirming that she has produced the show with her company, Hello Sunshine.
Based on the book of the same name, Daisy Jones & The Six follows the story of a rock band in the 1970s—loosely inspired by Fleetwood Mac. Here’s everything we know about the show adaption so far….
What is the plot of Daisy Jones & The Six?
The plotline, as per Prime Video itself, goes: “Based on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six is a limited musical-drama series detailing the rise and precipitous fall of a renowned rock band. In 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were on top of the world. Fronted by two charismatic lead singers—Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne—the band had risen from obscurity to fame. And then, after a sold-out show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members finally agree to reveal the truth. This is the story of how an iconic band imploded at the height of its powers.”
It’s thought that the series will follow a similar format and story to the book, which sees the band look back on their experiences in documentary style, 20 years later.
Who’s in the cast of Daisy Jones & The Six?
The series stars Riley Keough (granddaughter of Elvis Presley) as Daisy Jones, Sam Claflin as Billy Dunne, Camila Morrone as Camila Dunne, Will Harrison as Graham Dunne, Suki Waterhouse as Karen Sirko, Josh Whitehouse as Eddie Roundtree, Sebastian Chacon as Warren Rhodes, Nabiyah Be as Simone Jackson, and Tom Wright as Teddy Price, with a special guest appearance by Timothy Olyphant as Rod Reyes.
