Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line) and Amazon Studios are collaborating on a Daisy Jones & The Six limited series based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel. Amazon gave the series a 13 episode order and will be producing the series with Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Circle of Confusion.
The limited series will air exclusively on Amazon Prime Video and has the Oscar nominated screenwriting team of Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Disaster Artist) writing the series’ pilot. They’ll also oversee the limited series as executive producers along with Reese Witherspoon, Hello Sunshine’s Lauren Neustadter, and Circle of Confusion’s Brad Mendelsohn. Author Taylor Jenkins Reid is on board as a producer.
“When I heard Hello Sunshine was developing Daisy Jones & The Six, I tracked down a copy right away and devoured it in one sitting. I loved it so much I had to take it off the market and bring it to Amazon Studios,” stated Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “I was immediately struck by how perfectly it fit into our overall approach of bringing passionate creators and entertaining, compelling content to our Prime Video audience. Reese, Lauren and I are kindred spirits!”
“As soon as I started reading Daisy Jones & The Six, I immediately fell head over heels in love with it, and I’m thrilled to be bringing it to the screen with Amazon and Jen Salke, whose passionate pursuit of the material spoke volumes,” said Reese Witherspoon. “With Neustadter and Weber, two writers I deeply admire, stewarding this project, I am so confident that Daisy and her band’s journey toward finding their voice will leave just as permanent a mark with viewers around the world as it did with me.”
The Plot: Daisy Jones & The Six centers on a fictional rock band in the 1970s, following their rise through the ranks of the LA music scene and beyond, eventually becoming one of the most legendary bands in the world.
