‘Vinyl’ Is a New HBO Series About the 1970s Record Industry



Set in 1970s America, Vinyl follows the fictional American Century Records, a label struggling to reinvent itself and capture a new sound.  Boardwalk Empire’s Bobby Cannavale plays the record executive, with both Martin Scorcese and Mick Jagger conceptualizing and directing.<!–/*
