Boardwalk Empire director-producer Allen Coulter is reuniting with the series’ executive producers Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter. Coulter has joined HBO’s upcoming untitled Rock ‘n’ Roll drama series from Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Winter.
Created by Winter, the hourlong drama is set in 1970s New York and explores the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive (Bobby Cannavale) trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound. Winter and George Mastras co-wrote the project and serve as executive producers with Scorsese, Jagger, Coulter, Rick Yorn, Victoria Pearman and Emma Tillinger Koskoff.
Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano and Juno Temple co-star, and the cast includes Andrew Dice Clay, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, James Jagger, Jack Quaid, Birgitte Sorenson, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Bo Dietl, Robert Funaro and Joe Caniano.
Coulter has directed the pilots for such series as Ray Donovan, Damages, Nurse Jackie and Sons Of Anarchy. In addition to Boardwalk Empire, he also served as producer-director on HBO’s The Sopranos and helmed feature Hollywoodland. He is with ESA, UTA and attorney Bob Getman.
