Together with his partners, Richie Finestra, President of American Century Records, is on the verge of selling his struggling company to German Polygram, an impending distribution agreement with Led Zeppelin part of the package. But after an awkward encounter with Robert Plant, it's clear that the sale is in jeopardy. Heading home to Greenwich, CT, a detour leads Richie to an unplanned reunion with Lester Grimes, a musical artist with whom he has a complicated history. With thoughts of Lester weighing on him, Richie heads to the office, where he learns of another problem: bombastic Frank 'Buck' Rogers, owner of a chain of radio stations, is about to boycott American Century due to a perceived slight from their artist, Donny Osmond. In crisis mode, Richie gives his AR department a mandate to find new acts, prompting office assistant Jamie Vine to bring in The Nasty Bits, aproto-punk band unlike anything anyone has ever heard. Richie, meanwhile, enlists thuggish independent promotion man Joe Corsoto help with the Buck Rogers situation. After a three-day coke binge, Corso summons the sober Richie to Rogers' home, where things go horribly awry. Later, Richie learns that Polygram has agreed to buy the company, but with both Lester and the Buck Rogers debacle on his mind, he goes violently off the wagon, trashing the den of his home and jeopardizing his relationship with his wife Devon and their two children. Coked out and on his own in downtown Manhattan, Richie ends up being drawn by a crowd of young people to the Mercer Arts Center, where he sees The New York Dolls perform.

Dodgier than Apple tax returns
Avoid being a numpty by buying individual episodes instead of a series pass. Save £5!
I'll buy it as soon as it's £24.90 or cheaper than that. The algorithms failed here.
its not as good as it should be
its ok, but fails to capture the music in the manner such a show should, at its heart with a great story, cast biult around its essence,
instead its a lot of americans, being loud and bit over the top. pity this could have been INCREDIBLE sadly its ok, just fails to hit the marks a little, wait till the price drops to pick it up.
