A while back, we once tweeted “I still don’t get why there’s no movie about Fleetwood Mac recording “Rumours.” What white actress under 40 wouldn’t kill to play pissed-off Stevie Nicks at the height of her powers?” The tweet got a fairly healthy response, and in that rarest of twitter phenomena, most of the responses were in agreement. But a significant number of them mentioned Daisy Jones & The Six, the upcoming Prime Video limited series based on the novel by Taylor Reid Jenkins. Looking at the just released teaser trailer, you can see why:
Do we have thoughts? Darling, have you met us? Walk with us.
It looks amazing, to be honest. The costume and production design to such a great job of establishing time and place. Yes, it’s clearly based on Fleetwood Mac (right down to the guitar work and harmonizing), but it feels just fictional enough to make us think that an actual Rumours film could still happen some day. To be perfectly grim about it, the recent deaths of Christine McVie and Lisa Marie Presley (star Riley Keough’s mother) are only going to increase interest in this series. Of course we’re going to devour this. The fictional band recorded a very real album, which will drop the same day the series does, March 3rd, with songwriting contributions from Marcus Mumford, Phoebe Bridgers, and Jackson Browne. The track for the first single “Regret Me” just dropped and you can hear just how much they tried to reproduce the Fleetwood Mac sound without copying it exactly.
Based on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six is a limited musical-drama series detailing the rise and precipitous fall of a renowned rock band. In 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were on top of the world. Fronted by two charismatic lead singers—Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin)—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 finally agree to reveal the truth. This is the story of how an iconic band imploded at the height of its powers.
