Limited series about The Rolling Stones' early years coming to FX

Updated: Mar 1, 2021

A two season limited series about The Rolling Stones' early days is being produced for FX. The show is being written by author Nick Hornby, known for writing the book High Fidelity. Production company Left Bank Pictures - responsible for the successful Netflix drama series The Crown - is set to produce the show.

The series will focus on the bands so-called "glory years", from their formation in the early 1960's, till 1972. In this time period the band released some of their best albums, such as Their Satanic Majesties Request, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street.

The production company behind the series is Left Bank Pictures, who produced the Netflix's drama series The Crown and Starz' Outlander. Recently Left Bank also had major success with the drama biopic Quiz, about the "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" cheat scandal.

How much the band will be included in the writing process is unclear, but they have allowed the makers of the series to use their music. Mick Jagger recently helped co-create the show Vinyl, a series set in the 1970's music business of New York, so maybe he wants to be more involved with this series as well!
