It’s one of the most anticipated limited series of the year, but will Daisy Jones and The Six strike a chord?
Beginning at the end, it’s October 1977 and Daisy Jones & The Six are playing a sold out show at Soldier Field in Chicago. It’s the last time they ever set foot on stage together as a band. Now, decades later, the band members agree to finally reveal the truth about their careers.
We are then taken back to the very beginning, to suburban Pennsylvania, to meet the band – the charismatic frontman Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin); Billy’s loyal brother and guitarist Graham (Will Harrison); keyboardist Karen (Suki Waterhouse) who Graham is crushing on; bassist Eddie (John Whitehouse); and drummer Warren Rojas (Sebastian Chacon), as well as photography Camila (Camila Morrone) who follows her beau. The group pack up and move all the way to sunny Los Angeles where music producer Teddy Price (Tom Wright) offers them an opportunity of a lifetime.
Also in LA is the spirited and enigmatic singer-songwriter Daisy Jones (Riley Keough), who’s trying her hand at making it big and sick of being the muse to other songwriters. When Teddy offers her the opportunity to work with The Six, magic happens and so a rocky journey begins to produce their one and only album, Aroura.
Through the 10 episode first season, showrunners Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber have adapted Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 novel of the same to the screen, deep diving into exploring the highs and lows of creative artistry and making your mark.
Riley Keough, who is actually Elvis’ granddaughter, absolutely shines and sparkles as Daisy, and the chemistry between her, Sam Claflin and Camila Morrone is compelling as the story takes some interesting turns. As a whole, every single member of the band is intriguing as we explore the band’s history together.
The catchy music ensures Daisy Jones and The Six won’t disappoint.
The first three episodes of Daisy Jones and The Six is now available to stream on Prime Video, with new episodes every Friday until March 24.
