Olivia Wilde to star in Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese drama

Actress Olivia Wilde has been picked to star in a new TV drama executive produced by Sir Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese.

The TRON: Legacy star is heading back to the small screen in a yet to be titled rock 'n' roll pilot from producers Jagger, Scorsese and The Wolf of Wall Street screenwriter Terence Winter.

The show is set in 1970s New York and centers on a record executive, played by Bobby Cannavale, as he attempts to resurrect his label during the rise of punk and disco music.

Wilde is set to play Cannavale's wife, a former actress/model.

The project will mark Wilde's first return to television since 2012, after starring in Hugh Laurie's medical drama House for five seasons.

Production on the new series is set to begin this summer (14).
