The new trailer has been released for The Weeknd's new HBO series 'The Idol.' It looks intense. Also, I can't get over that Dan Levy from 'Schitt's Creek' is in it. Lol.
The “Blinding Lights” history-maker, 33, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, portrays shady nightclub owner Tedros, who becomes obsessed with Jocelyn, an up-and-coming pop star played by “nepo baby” Lily-Rose Depp, 23.
Set to Britney Spears’ “Gimme More,” the nearly 2-minute clip shows Tedros and Jocelyn meeting for the first time in a club, where Tedros tells her: “You’ve got the best job in the world. You should be having way more fun.”
“More fun” indeed ensues, including sex-tinged scenes of partying, drinking and consuming cocaine that seemingly combines “Euphoria” and “50 Shades of Grey.”
That is quite the combo. The show airs on HBO June 4th.
