The highly anticipated Daisy Jones & the Six TV adaptation is coming sooner than we thought with a March 3, 2023, release date. Along with the announcement trailer, first look photos via Vanity Fair were also released.
The adaptation from Taylor Jenkins Reid’s wildly popular historical fiction novel (published in 2019) of the same name will go to Amazon Prime Video and follows the rise and fall of a fictional ’70s band in the guise of Fleetwood Mac. The oral history is told through interviews, as the timeline will follow the band’s start, heyday and the characters aged 20 years following the band’s success.
Riley Keough will star as the titular lead singer of the band. Other stars appearing include Sam Claflin as Billy Dunne, Suki Waterhouse as Karen, Sebastian Chacon as Warren, Josh Whitehouse as Eddie and Will Harrison as Graham. Timothy Olyphant will portray Rod Reyes; Tom Wright will play Teddy Price and Nabiyah Be will portray Simone Jackson.
Scott Neustadter (“The Fault in Our Stars, The Spectacular Now”) and Lauren Levy Neustadter, head of film and television at Reese Witherspoon’s production company Hello Sunshine, will produce.
“I flipped for it, and really just sort of fell in love with the whole thing,” said Scott, who received a pre-publication manuscript of Reid’s bestselling novel in 2017. “Transporting to the 1970s Laurel Canyon music scene was, like, the greatest gift I could imagine.”
Reese Witherspoon’s book club selected Daisy Jones & the Six as its Feb. 2019 monthly selection.
Other book adaptations that stemmed from Reese’s Book Club include Netflix’s limited series adaptation of Tembi Locke’s “From Scratch,” Hulu’s television show adaptation of Celeste Ng’s “Little Fires Everywhere,” the theatrical release of Delia Owens’ “Where the Crawdads Sing” starring Daisy Edgar-Jones, Harris Dickerson and Taylor John Smith.
