The show, which Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger are producing, filmed in the neighborhood last Friday as well ... and we'll likely see them again.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show is "set in 1970s New York, as punk and disco are emerging onto the drug-hazed, sex-crazed music scene, and record executive Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) is trying to revitalize his label." The cast includes Olivia Wilde, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen and Mick's son James Jagger.
