Daisy Jones & The Six is based on the bestselling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid. It follows a fictional rock band set in the ’70s, and the ups and downs they face. Amazon will be presenting the series in a documentary style, in order to capture the creativity and erraticism of the wild era.
The story begins with the band rising in the LA music scene, then becoming one of the most legendary bands in the world, but splitting up when they reached their peak. The story will predominantly focus on the reasons behind their split.
Timothy Olyphant will be seen next in National Champions, Havoc, and an untitled production by David O. Russell.
