The Rolling Stones' rise to fame to become a two-season TV series

The Rolling Stones’ meteoric rise to fame in the 1960s is going to be turned into a new TV series – and if someone hasn’t called Harry Styles to star in it, we’ll be stunned. 

High Fidelity writer Nick Hornby will be taking on the story of the famed British band, who defined an era of rock music and carved out an unmatched legacy as a result. 

According to Deadline, the show will focus on the ‘glory years’ of the band across the period of at least two seasons, starting in the 1960s through to 1972. 

It will also be the first time that the band have allowed their stories to be told, and the first time their music has ever been used for a drama. 

The series will be made for US network FX, and will be produced by Left Bank Pictures, whose successes include smash-hit massive Netflix series, The Crown. 

It’s not yet known who will star in the series, and who will play the lead members of the band – Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Whyman and Charlie Watts.

However, back in 2016, Harry Styles – who has ventured into acting with Dunkirk and the upcoming Don’t Worry Darling – was rumoured to be in talks to play Jagger in a biopic that never materialised.

He has since made no secret of being a fan of the frontman, and even emulated him with a pretty spot on impression during an appearance on SNL.
