Riley Keough To Star in Amazon Series DAISY JONES AND THE SIX

Riley Keough To Star in Amazon Series DAISY JONES AND THE SIX
"Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Logan Lucky" star Riley Keough is set to lead Amazon's upcoming musical drama series "Daisy Jones and the Six" created by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber. The show is produced by Reese Witherspoon, while "Mulan" and "The Zookeeper's Wife" helmer Niki Caro is on board to direct the pilot and multiple episodes.

The 12-episode series is based on Taylor Jenkins Reid's novel of the same name, and it focuses on the rise and fall of a fictional rock band in the 1970s. Keough stars as the titular protagonist, a spirited and enigmatic singer-songwriter born into privilege but ignored by her selfish parents, who comes of age and rises to rock superstardom against the backdrop of the Los Angeles music scene in the 1970s.

Will Graham ("The Man in the High Castle", "Mozart in the Jungle") will executive produce alongside Witherspoon, Caro, Lauren Neustadter and Brad Mendelsohn.

Keough received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the first season of Starz's "The Girlfriend Experience". Her big screen credits also include "American Honey", "Under the Silver Lake" and "The House That Jack Built". She can currently be seen in the Netflix drama "Earthquake Bird" opposite Alicia Vikander, and recently finished work on Janicza Bravo's "Zola" and Antonio Campos' "The Devil All the Time".
