HBO Orders an '80s-Set Music-Video Comedy from David Fincher

Yahoo! Music News - Tue, 05/05/2015 - 03:05

HBO Orders an '80s-Set Music-Video Comedy from David FincherDid you know that at one point, music was just music? Like, you would listen to a song on something called a "radio" and you'd have to make up the singer's face in your mind because it was a purely aural medium. But then the 1980s came along and the music video came into the mainstream thanks to MTV and the awesome hair of Mark Goodman. And then all hell broke loose in the music industry! Why am I giving you a brief history lesson in music videos? Well, I wanted to paint a picture of what HBO's new series Video Synchronicity might look like. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has given a series order to the comedy, which is set in the 1980s and follows a video producer who moves to Los Angeles right at the beginning of the music-video boom. There's a big name behind the show, too. David Fincher ( Fight Club, House of Cards) will direct and produce the series. Starring as Robby, a green director who moves to Hollywood looking to direct a sci-fi movie but falls into making music videos, will be Charlie Rowe, who you last saw hairless as Leo on Fox's Red Band Society. Also on board to star are Sam Page, Jason Flemyng, Kerry Condon, Elizabeth Lail, Corbin Bernsen, and Paz Vega. This sounds pretty good, guys. And I'm loving how HBO is going hard into comedy territory. In addition to Video Synchronicity, HBO has the Rock's Ballers, Danny McBride's Vice Principals, Lorne Michael's Brothers in Atlanta, Sarah Jessica Parker's Divorce, former web series High Maintenance, and the World War 3 farce The Brink coming soon. Will you watch Video Synchronicity ? Will you at least think about it?
