Great news to start February with, Sam is to star in ‘Daisy Jones & the Six’, a 12 part musical drama based on the book of the same name by Taylor Jenkins Reid. The series will premiere on Amazon (date TBC).

Variety wrote the following: “Sam Claflin has been cast as the male lead opposite Riley Keough in the forthcoming Amazon series “Daisy Jones and the Six.”

Best on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, “Daisy Jones & The Six” is a 12 episode musical drama detailing the rise and precipitous fall of a renowned rock band in the 1970s.

Claflin will play the character of Billy Dunne, the band’s charismatic frontman whose increasingly complicated feelings for bandmate and songwriting partner Daisy (Keough) threaten to upend his life. Keough’s Daisy is described as being born into privilege, but ignored by her selfish parents. She is a spirited and enigmatic singer/songwriter who comes of age and rises to rock superstardom against the backdrop of the L.A. music scene in the 70s.

Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter of Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine will executive produce “Daisy Jones & the Six” along with Brad Mendelsohn for Circle of Confusion, and showrunner Will Graham. Niki Caro is on board to direct multiple episodes along with executive producing. Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber created the series and also serve as executive producers, with Jenkins Reid as producer.” [x]
