My Back Pages Coming to HBO?
signed off on upcoming series set in the rock 'n roll world of 1970s New York--where I worked for almost the entire decade at the legendary Crawdaddy. So this is literally "my back pages." Terence Winter to be show runner, Marty Scorcese (who knows something about 1970s NYC and its, ahem, excesses) will produce and direct the pilot. Stars range from Ray Ramono and Olivia Wilde to James Jagger and Andrew Dice Clay. No title as yet. They could just call it "Cocaine."
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
