HBO Sets February 2016 Premieres for ‘Girls,’ ‘Vinyl’ and More
Granted we’ve barely made it out of October, HBO has us accustomed to a certain winter premiere schedule, among it the girls of Girls heading back to Brooklyn in January. Now, HBO seems to have shifted its schedule a bit, pushing premieres of Girls Season 5, Scorsese-Jagger rock drama Vinyl, and Mark Duplass’ Togetherness to February 2016.
Per HBO’s official announcement, the Bobby Cannavale - Olivia Wilde driven Vinyl will bow on February 14 with a two-hour premiere, from 9:00 to 11:00 P.M. The following Sunday on February 21 will join Vinyl with the Season 5 premiere of Girls, and Season 2 premiere of Togetherness.
Thus far, relatively little is known of Girls’ fifth season, though Hannah, Jessa, Marnie and Shoshanna are expected to pick up with the scant Season 4 timejump that saw Hannah turning down Adam’s renewed interest, and continuing a relationship with Jake Lacy’s teacher character Fran. Elementary star Lucy Liu has also been seen on set playing a version of herself, acting opposite Adam Driver’s character.
Previously titled History of Music, Vinyl stems from Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, with Martin Scorsese on board to executive produce. So reads the official logline:
From Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, this new 10-episode drama series is set in 1970s New York. A ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.
The series also stars Ray Romano, Legend of Korra alum P.J. Byrne, Joe Caniano, Andrew “Dice” Clay, Ato Essandoh, Robert Funaro, James Jagger, Game of Thrones breakout Birgitte Sorenson, J.C. Mackenzie, Juno Temple, Max Casella and Jack Quaid.
