From a Deadline exclusive:

Showtime is getting groovy with a drama project about the 1970s music industry. The pay cable network has bought Vinyl, a spec script… Barry Levinson attached to direct… Set in 1970s Los Angeles, Vinyl explores every aspect of the music business through multiple vantage points — from the record executives and rock stars to the drug pushers and the prostitutes, from the stage to the boardroom to the DJ booth.

Sounds like a Traffic-esque project; I’m interested; as long as they don’t leave out notable movements in funk, disco, jazz, R&B, and even hip-hop. I pity the fools who have decided to tackle this project 🙂
