Executive producers:
Martin Scorsese – an iconic producer who won his first Oscar for “The Departed”. He has also been involved in music documentaries such as “Shine a Light” and “George Harrison: Living in a Material World”
Mick Jagger – Does he even need an introduction? Not really. But Jagger was actually nominated for an Emmy i 2013 for “Crossfire Hurricane”.
Terence Winter: Whats impressive about this guy is that he has produced and written some episodes of The Sopranos – a great tv-series. Vinyl is actually created by Winter, who is also the show-runner.

With such a great team behind Vinyl this better be good. And now we have to wait until February to see the first episode. At least it’s something to look forward to in 2016.
