Upcoming HBO TV Shows. ‘Living On Video’ By David Fincher. Don’t You Like Music Videos?
David Fincher has a new television project. HBO has given the green light to ‘Living On Video’, set in the music video industry in the eighties.
The project filmed two episodes in lieu of a pilot, and the network has ordered 8 more for a 10-episode first-season run.
Thus, film director David Fincher is revisiting his music video roots. ‘Living On Video’ is written by Rich Wilkes and Bob Stephenson, a friend of David Fincher from his music video days.
The show will star Charlie Rowe, Jason Flemyng, Kerry Condon, Corbin Bernsen, Sam Page, Elizabeth Lail and the Spanish actress Paz Vega.
The plot focus on Robby, who dreams of filming a science fiction movie. But he accepts a job as a filmmaker in a video production company in Los Angeles.
Set in 1983, the show revolves around the players of the then-exploding music video industry: directors, record executives and crew members, many of them dabbling in drugs.
Busy times for Fincher. Among other projects, he also executive produces and directed the first two episodes of Netflix drama House of Cards.
“It’s a bad day when you don’t get the work done that you need to get done or you don’t get it done to the satisfaction.” David Fincher.
** Fincher was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director for the romantic fantasy drama The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) and the drama The Social Network (2010). He is also known for having directed the psychological thriller Seven (1995), Fight Club (1999), the mystery thrillersZodiac (2007) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), and the psychological thriller Gone Girl (2014).
