Plot

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network's boss John Landgraf revealed the series would take place from the band's formation in the early 1960s through 1972. Since the show will shed light on their journey, fans can expect the limited series to include a fantastic run of hit albums such as ‘Satanic Majesties Request’, ‘Beggars Banquet’, ‘Let It Bleed’, ‘Sticky Fingers’ and ‘Exile on Main Street’.

Cast

This is where things get spicy. The team behind the limited series is none other than the producers of Netflix’s award-winning drama series ‘The Crown', as published by The Hollywood Reporter. The story of the yet-to-be-titled drama series is being taken care of by Nick Hornby, who is best known for his work on movies such as ‘High Fidelity’ and ‘About a Boy’. Also, fans will be treated with two seasons of the show.

Talking about the cast, the makers have not spilled the beans on the same yet. It is too early to guess who will be roped in to play the members of the band, namely Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.

Trailer

MEAWW is yet to receive the trailer. Since the project is in the early stages, we might have to wait for a while. We will keep you updated.
