Audiences everywhere have been holding their breath for the March 3rd release of "Daisy Jones & The Six" as a TV miniseries. A Prime Video adaptation, the original novel shot to popularity in 2019 and catapulted author Taylor Jenkins Reid to household-name status.


The book is based on the iconic band Fleetwood Mac, who, while being extraordinarily successful, experienced equally infamous conflict behind the scenes. "Daisy Jones" follows titular character Daisy as she grows up in 1960s rock & roll culture and eventually discovers her own voice. Enter steadily-growing band The Six, headed by Billy Dunne, and music magic happens when the two parts converge. Only, the story is told in the catastrophic aftermath of glory — in interviews 20 years down the line when the band is no longer together. The series, releasing in four parts weekly throughout March, will catalogue the fictional band from its formation, through its rise, and through its fall.




Daisy Jones is played in the series by Riley Keough, who also featured in 2010 music biopic The Runaways. Although she is the granddaughter of Elvis Presley, "Daisy Jones & The Six" is her first role in which she sings. Alongside her as Billy Dunne is Sam Claflin, who you may recognize from playing Finnick in the Hunger Games series. Supporting players include Camila Morrone,Suki Waterhouse, Nabiyah Be,Will Harrison, Josh Whitehouse,Sebastian Chacon, and Tom Wright. As an ensemble piece, "Daisy Jones & The Six" brings a promising cast. The interactions between each character and their perceptions as told in the later interviews will create amazing sustenance for drama.


Perhaps the best part about Daisy Jones being adapted is the chance to experience the music and visuals of its '70s rock-era in high-definition. The wardrobe, as seen in the trailer, is impeccably styled — the fringy, wavy haircuts are truly enviable. The music, including two tracks, "Regret Me" and "Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)", which have been released already, show lots of potential with their glittering vintage sound. The forthcoming full-length album Aurora, which features the talents ofPhoebe Bridgers, Marcus Mumford, and Jackson Browne, among others, may just be a next favorite album for audiences.




The '70s was a rich time period for music, and the adaptation of Daisy Jones & The Six is a chance for lovers of the book to experience an immersive dive into the heady allure of the sex, drugs, and rock & roll era in a way that hasn’t been done before. 


So, make sure to tune in this Friday and let us know what you think of the adaptation!
