Daisy Jones and the Six is no longer fictional. A trailer for the upcoming Prime Video series, based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel of the same name, brings the band to life under the direction of Riley Keough as the titular character.
In 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were at the top of the world. Led by two charismatic lead singers – Daisy Jones (Keough) and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) – the band had risen from obscurity to fame. And then, after a sold-out show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members finally agree to reveal the truth. This is the story of how an iconic band imploded at the peak of its powers.
The trailer released on Wednesday features clips of the band performing and writing music together, and also hints at Daisy and Billy’s rocky relationship. The trailer also features the band performing their hit single from the book “Regret Me”.
