HBO Releases New Teaser For The Weeknd’s Music Industry Drama ‘The Idol’

HBO has released a second teaser for its forthcoming music industry drama series The Idol, starring Lily-Rose Depp and Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye.

The teaser debuted at the Weeknd’s concert in Las Vegas last night which is seemingly fitting considering the series focuses on pop music’s overindulgence. The brief teaser, which introduces many of the characters, displays some racy scenes before panning to a trio of industry heads. “That’s sex,” says one character. “That’s what we’re selling.”

Euphoria creator Sam Levinson co-created the series alongside Tesfaye and Reza Fahim. It follows a female pop singer who becomes romantically involved with an enigmatic Los Angeles club owner who turns out to be the leader of a secret cult.

In late April, director Amy Seimetz and actress Suzanna Son exited the series as it took a new creative direction.

Also starring in the series is Blackpink’s Jennie, Juliebeth Gonzalez, Suzanna Son, Melanie Liburd, Tunde Adebimpe, Steve Zissis, Troye Sivan, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Nico Hiraga, along with Maya Eshet, Tyson Ritter, Kate Lyn Sheil, Liz Sierra and Finley Rose Slater.

Joe Epstein is both writer and showrunner on the series which is executive produced by Levinson, Tesfaye, Fahim, Epstein, Ashley Levinson, Kevin Turen, Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert. Mary Laws, who has written on Succession and Preacher, writes and co-exec produces.

The Weeknd’s manager Wassim “SAL” Slaiby and creative director La Mar C. Taylor also co-exec produce.
