Olivia Wilde to Co-Star in HBO’s Jagger-Scorsese-Winter-Mastras Rock ‘n’ Roll Drama

Olivia Wilde is returning to television.

The House alum has booked a co-starring role on HBO’s untitled rock ‘n’ roll drama pilot from executive producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, Terence Winter and George Mastras, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Set in 1970s New York, the pilot explores the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all told through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.

Bobby Cannavale stars as Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a top-tier record label (American Century Records) with a great ear for discovering talent who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision.

Wilde will play Devon Finestra, Richie’s wife. She’s a former actress/model who lived a Bohemian life in 1960s New York. Richie’s crisis causes strain on their family and propels her to re-immerse in her former lifestyle.

The role marks Wilde’s return to the small-screen after she starred as Remy “Thirteen” Hadley on seasons four through eight of Fox’s House. Her credits include The O.C. and featuresIn Time, Rush, Tron: Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens, Rush and Her. She’s repped by WME, Untitled, Hamilton Hodell and Ziffren Brittenham. Wilde next appears in Reed Morano’s Meadowland.

The drama hails from Boardwalk Empire’s Winter and Scorsese, the latter of whom will direct and executive produce. Winter will pen the script and exec produce alongside Mastras, who will serve as showrunner.

The project is based on an idea from Rolling Stones frontman Jagger — who conceived the entry as a film first at Disney and then at Paramount. He will exec produce with his Jagged Films partner Victoria Pearman, and Scorsese’s manager Rick Yorn and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. The drama marks a reunion for Scorsese, Jagger and Pearman, who collaborated on the 2008 documentary Shine a Light.

Production will likely start in early summer 2014.
