HBO has a pretty good track record of greatly written and well executed original programming. Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Boardwalk Empire, Oz, Eastbound & Down and who could forget The Larry Sanders Show.

(Still holds up, by the way!)

Now, there's a new series coming next year that gets into the seedy underbelly of the 1970's record industry.

Two things are certain. There's going to be some great music... and a ton of drug use.

Okay... Three things.  It's most likely going to be awesome.  Here's a  blurb from HBO.

"From Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, this new 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."-HBO

Check out the trailer which features New York Dolls fairly heavily, which is nice!
