If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been sitting around waiting for more information about Amazon Prime’s new series, Daisy Jones & The Six. Well, I have good news for you. The first trailer for the series debuted today—and from the looks of it, the show is shaping up to be moody (and fun!) as heck. Which sounds pretty nice right about now, with mushroom zombies and superheroes running around on our screens. You can watch the trailer above.
For the uninitiated, Daisy Jones & The Six is an adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel of the same name. The story follows a fictional band, inspired by Fleetwood Mac, that was doomed from the start. Set in the ’70s, the plot chronicles a tortured romance between the band’s two lead singers. Sound familiar? Here’s everything you need to know about Daisy Jones & The Six.
What is Daisy Jones & The Six About?
Sex, drugs, and rock and roll, baby. Daisy Jones & The Six is narrated by the members of the band, years after they split up. Each character gives their version of events in a juicy tell-all interview—and their vivid retellings weave together a story of love and loss. According to the show’s synopsis, the miniseries will follow the format of the book. “In 1997, Daisy Jones & The Six were on top of the world,” the synopsis reads. “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 agree to reveal the truth.”
Who Stars in Daisy Jones & The Six?
Riley Keough, the daughter of the late Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley, stars as Daisy Jones. Sam Claflin plays her love interest Billy Dune. The rest of the cast includes Suki Waterhouse (Karen Sirko), Camila Morrone (Camila Dunne), Will Harrison (Graham Dunne), Sebastian Chacon (Warren Rhodes), Josh Whitehouse (Eddie Roundtree), Nabiyah Be (Simone Jackson), and Timothy Olyphant (Rod).
Does Daisy Jones & The Six Have Original Music?
Absolutely. In fact, the band’s first single, “Regret Me,” is available to stream right now. In the brooding track, Daisy and Billy belt the lyrics: “you regret me and I regret you/you couldn’t handle your liquor and you can’t seem to handle the truth.” You may be wondering what, exactly, the truth is. Well, dear reader, you’ll have to tune in and see.
