Season 1

Vinyl is an American period drama television series created by Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese, Rich Cohen and Terence Winter which follows Richie Finestra, a New York music executive in the late 1970s, as he hustles to make a career out of the city's diverse music scene.

From Martin Scorsese (The Departed, Boardwalk Empire), Mick Jagger (Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown) and Terence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street; The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire), Vinyl is a ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business of 1970s New York at the dawn of punk, disco and hip-hop.

Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale), the founder and president of American Century Records, is trying to save his company and soul without destroying everyone in his path.

With his passion for music and discovering talent gone by the wayside, and American Century on the precipice of being sold, he has a life-altering event that reignites his love of music, but severely damages his personal life.

Richie's wife, Devon (Olivia Wilde), a former actress and model who was part of Andy Warhol's Factory scene in 1960s New York City, is now a suburban mother of two. Richie's personal and professional crises put additional stress on their relationship, inspiring a desire to return to her Bohemian roots.

Meanwhile, as head of promotions and a partner at American Century, Zak Yankovich's (Ray Romano) experience in the industry and hundred-dollar handshakes make him an invaluable part of the company, though he works in Richie's shadow. Their professional relationship is strained by disagreements over how to guide the company through the music landscape of 1973.

Vinyl stars Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), as Richie Finestra, Olivia Wilde (Doll and Em) and Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond).

Other series regulars include Ato Essandoh as Lester Grimes, Richie's first client in the early 1960s; Max Casella as Julius "Julie" Silver, head of A&R of American Century, who struggles to stay hip and relevant in the young man's game of rock 'n' roll; and P.J. Byrne as Scott Levitt, company attorney and junior partner at American Century, whose legal manoeuvering and abrasive personality continually test Richie's patience.

Also starring are J.C. MacKenzie as Skip Fontaine, head of sales and partner at American Century, whose savvy and sometimes questionable business practices inflate American Century's profits; Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as Ingrid, a member of Andy Warhol's Factory scene in the 1960s, and a former friend of Devon and Richie; and Juno Temple as Jamie Vine, an ambitious A&R assistant at American Century, who uses her keen abilities to blend into the various subcultures of the New York music scene.

Rounding out the starring cast are Jack Quaid as Clark Morelle, a junior A&R executive with misguided ambition; James Jagger as Kip Stevens, founder and lead singer of The Nasty Bits, a raw New York City rock band; and Paul Ben-Victor as Maury Gold, Richie's mentor and owner of Rondelay Records.

Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terrence Winter executive produce along with Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, John Melfi, Allen Coulter and George Mastras. Winter serves as showrunner.
