TVLine Items: Daisy Jones' Leading Man, Demi Gets Talk Show and More

Sam Claflin Daisy Jones and the Six

Daisy Jones & The Six has found its lead singer: Sam Claflin (the Hunger Games movies) will star opposite Riley Keough in Amazon’s rock-music drama, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s popular 2019 novel, the series chronicles the rise and fall of a fictional 1970s rock band. In the book, Keough’s Daisy is a naturally gifted musician who grew up too fast in the Los Angeles music scene and deals with the repercussions of that as her fame increases. Daisy’s star skyrockets when she teams up with The Six, fronted by the charismatic Billy Dunne (Claflin). Daisy and Billy’s working relationship, with all of its pinnacles and pitfalls, makes up most of the novel, which is presented as an oral history that unfolds over several years.

Claflin’s other credits include the show Peaky Blinders and the big-screen romantic drama Me Before You.
