HBO has shared a new teaser for the drama series ‘The Idol’, and announced it’s premiere date – June 4th.
The Idol, from Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, Reza Fahim and ‘Euphoria’ creator Sam Levinson, follows Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp), an aspiring pop star who meets and falls for Tedros (The Weeknd), a self-help guru and the leader of a modern-day cult. An official series synopsis reads: “After a nervous breakdown derailed Jocelyn’s (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 Idol also stars Troye Sivan, Dan Levy, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Eli Roth, Hari Nef, Jane Adams, and Jennie from BLACKPINK. The show will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
