Taylor Jenkins Reid, the author of “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo,” now has a new accomplishment under her belt: “Daisy Jones and the Six,” a critically acclaimed book, will be featured as a miniseries on Amazon Prime. According to the official release, the book series adapted for Prime Video will consist of ten episodes. The series will take the form of a musical drama that will showcase different aspects of the lives of rock musicians. The book is written in a documentary manner and features various interviews with imaginary band members from the 1970s. Witherspoon’s production firm, Hello Sunshine, collaborated with Amazon Prime to release the television drama, and she is one of its executive producers.
The book was written in a way that makes turning it into a television series simple enough. It can be transformed for the viewers without making any serious changes to it. The pages resemble a movie script for a documentary-style film, yet they are undoubtedly fantasy. Then there’s 1970s Los Angeles, with its depictions of sex, drugs, and rock music. According to the author, Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks’ lives served as inspiration for the book. The music and the band’s history would be much appreciated by the fans. The series will have a full soundtrack, and Blake Mills is in charge of coming up with the enchanted music along with other musicians who also contributed to the sound in the film.
The series’ actress, Suki Waterhouse, admitted that she was drawn to the soundtrack and songs in the series as it is only occasionally that an actor gets to play the role of a musician in a drama show. Despite her lack of expertise in those areas, she was amazed by the sound and music. Riley Keough and other members of the star cast have also been posting updates on the drama on their social media pages, which got the viewers interested and they also searched for information about the position of the series.
