HBO’s The Idol Trailer Mesmerizes

Today, HBO released a new trailer for their upcoming series The Idol. From Euphoria‘s Sam Levinson and starring The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp, the show premieres on HBO on June 4th. Check out a description and the new trailer below:

 “After a nervous breakdown derailed Jocelyn’s (Lily-Rose Depp) last tour, she’s determined to claim her rightful status as the greatest and sexiest pop star in America. Her passions are reignited by Tedros (The Weeknd), a nightclub impresario with a sordid past. Will her romantic awakening take her to glorious new heights or the deepest and darkest depths of her soul?”

The premise of this show isn’t doing much for me; I’m only interested because of the involvement of The Weeknd and Levinson. I love music, and I’m intrigued by the turmoil many famous singers and musicians face. It’s the trashy drama angle that worries me. However, I also hate shows set in high school, and Levinson made magic with Euphoria, exploring themes of addiction, toxic relationships, and the distorted way we view life as kids. He really knows how to pull great performances from his casts. I may watch The Idol, at least at first, just to see if lightning can strike twice.
