The rock 'n' roll drama series exec-produced by Martin Scorsese and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger finally has a name and a date of sorts — HBO has announced that Vinyl will come in 2016. Reportedly long in gestation, the show is set to star Boardwalk Empire's Bobby Cannavale, House's Olivia Wilde, and Jagger's own son James.

Vinyl centers around a fictional record label called American Century Records. Few other details are available right now, but on paper at least Scorsese and Jagger could make for a strong combination in capturing the atmosphere of the '70s rock scene. Scorsese worked with the Stones earlier on Shine A Light, a well-received documentary centered around a 2006 performance.
