From Empire to Nashville, Hollywood has given us many iconic shows inspired by music, and they’re not going anywhere. This genre is going stronger than ever right now, and some of the most talked-about new shows are exploring the dark side of the music industry.
We can count on Donald Glover to start a conversation every time he creates a new show, and he truly knocked it out of the park with Swarm. Inspired by Beyoncé and her passionate fanbase Bey Hive, this satirical series centers on a young woman whose fixation with a famous pop superstar takes a dark turn.
Daisy Jones & The Six
If you’re looking for a TV show that perfectly recreates the wild spirit of the ’70s, Daisy Jones & The Six fits the bill. It’s based on the hit book of the same name, and it stars Riley Keough and Sam Claflin as the members of the fictional rock band, whose rise to prominence was as quick as their downfall.
The Idol is one of the most anticipated TV shows that HBO has in store this year, and for a good reason. It was co-created by Euphoria’s Sam Levinson, and centers on an up-and-coming pop star Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp) whose life takes a weird turn after she meets enigmatic modern-day cult leader Tedros (The Weeknd).
