David Fincher To Direct A HBO Series On The 80's Exploding Music Video Industry

David Fincher

David Fincher has made some really great movies, ‘Fight Club’, ‘Seven’, ‘Zodiac’’ The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, ‘The Social Network’, ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, and the recent ‘Gone Girl’ that I still have to see… and he has been involved into many other projects, such as TV series and music videos. He has actually directed videos for the top artists of the 80’s, such as the Rolling Stones, Madonna, Paula Abdul, Billy Idol, or Sting, and according to Deadline, Fincher will be directing a new HBO series ‘Living on Video’, a comedy about the music video industry in Los Angeles in the early 80’s.

The story will focus on Bobby who has just dropped out of college and arrives in Hollywood the head full of dreams – he wants to direct an epic science-fiction movie – but ends up working for a company making music videos. The series will be focusing on the ‘then-exploding music video industry — directors, record executives and crew members, many of them dabbling in drugs — through the eyes of the newcomer’.

The script, that Fincher wrote with Rich Wilkes and his frequent collaborator Bob Stevenson, is apparently done and Deadline describes the series as another behind-the-scenes show about the entertainment industry, in the vein of ‘Entourage’… At the end, is this another proof that the movie industry is more or less collapsing just like the music industry and that all the great directors are gonna work for TV shows now? What a loss but Fincher has two other HBO series in preparation!

If People are still watching videos, it is exclusively on YouTube, but I remember the good old times when i was glued on MTV. Sure, but it was a long time ago, do I want to relive the 80’s though? I am not sure, the music was pretty bad and I have zero nostalgia for that era.
