Daisy Jones & The Six: A Wild Ride Beginning March 3 on Prime Video
Daisy Jones & The Six, the highly anticipated TV series adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling novel of the same name, premieres March 3 on Prime Video. The series follows the meteoric rise and tumultuous fall of Daisy Jones and the Six, a band that plays a unique blend of rock and roll and pop in the 1970s. The show is loosely inspired by the legendary band Fleetwood Mac, whose personal turmoil during their Rumours era mimics the band’s own.
Riley Keough stars as Daisy Jones, the wild child-turned-solo artist with a sweet voice who meets Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin), the forceful frontman of a band building modest success. Daisy and Billy clash instantly, but the producer Teddy Price (Tom Wright) sides with Daisy and brings her into the band. Their mutual attraction both fuels and threatens their creative work. Graham Dunne (Will Harrison), Billy’s loyal brother and guitarist, harbors a longstanding crush on no-nonsense keyboardist Karen Sirko (Suki Waterhouse). Bassist Eddie Roundtree (Josh Whitehouse) is in unrequited love with Billy’s wife, Camila (Camila Morrone). Drummer Warren Rojas (Sebastian Chacon) is a genial party animal who mostly remains above the fray.
The show follows the group from their humble beginnings to sold-out stadiums, from studio sessions to drug-filled afterparties. But this isn’t just a rock n' roll fairy tale; Daisy Jones & the Six examines the inherent tension between the professional and private lives of musicians. The show captures the glamour, the hedonism, the freedom, the joy of unleashing talent and the agony of addiction, all the while building an acute psychological portrait of each character and – even more impressively – the cross-currents between them all.
The 10 45-minute episodes of Daisy Jones & The Six will be released in parts, with the first three available to stream March 3, followed by three episodes on March 10, two on March 17, and the final two on March 24. Though the show takes liberties from the novel, it remains an engrossing portrait of a rock band battling personal demons and relationship drama. Fans of Fleetwood Mac and Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel won’t want to miss this wild ride.
