On Wednesday, Amazon Prime Video released an official trailer for the highly anticipated television series adapted from Taylor Reid-Jenkins’ best-selling rock ‘n’ roll novel.

The musical drama details the rise and fall of a fictional rock band, loosely inspired by Fleetwood Mac, which imploded largely due to a combination of fame, vice and complicated relationships.

Singer Daisy Jones is played by Riley Keough, with Sam Claflin playing co-star Billy Dunne. After a sold-out show at Soldier Field in Chicago, the band folds. Then, decades later, from different points of view in documentary-style confessionals, they recount what happened amid flashbacks.

“You write songs about who you’d like to be, not who you are,” Keough’s character tells Billy in the sneak peek, later alluding to their “will they or won’t they” relationship. “What if you write songs about the guy who wants things he shouldn’t?” To which Billy from Claflin replies, “Who would want to hear a song about that?”

In the book, Billy is married to the love of his life, Camila Dunne (Camila Morrone), but their relationship is put to the test by the presence of his muse Daisy Jones.

Through a montage of shows, world travel, hotel rooms, Stevie Nicks-inspired fashions, epic original music, and elevated dramatic moments, the series showcases everything fans have been waiting for in the adaptation of He New York Times Best seller.

In December 2022, Keough opened up about her mother’s influence on her career and her similarities to Daisy Jones, describing Lisa Marie as “an inspiration” and “a very strong and intelligent woman”.

“I was raised by someone who did his own thing and didn’t really care what other people thought,” Keough added. “She was definitely an inspiration to me.”
