Reese Witherspoon Lands ’70s Rock Drama at Amazon


Amazon Studios has ordered a series based on the novel Daisy Jones & The Six from Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Circle of Confusion.

Written by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six centers on a fictional rock band in the 1970s, following their rise through the ranks of the L.A. music scene and beyond, eventually becoming one of the most legendary bands in the world. The project will be a co-production between Amazon Studios and Hello Sunshine.

Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (500 Days of SummerThe Fault In Our Stars) have written the pilot and will oversee the 13-episode limited series. Daisy Jones & The Six will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.

Original music from the series will be made available exclusively through Amazon Music, and the print and audiobook from Ballantine/Random House will also be available via and

“When I heard Hello Sunshine was developing Daisy Jones & The Six, I tracked down a copy right away and devoured it in one sitting,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “I loved it so much I had to take it off the market and bring it to Amazon Studios. I was immediately struck by how perfectly it fit into our overall approach of bringing passionate creators and entertaining, compelling content to our Prime Video audience. Reese, Lauren and I are kindred spirits!”

Witherspoon commented: “As soon as I started reading Daisy Jones & The Six, I immediately fell head over heels in love with it, and I’m thrilled to be bringing it to the screen with Amazon and Jen Salke, whose passionate pursuit of the material spoke volumes. With Neustadter and Weber, two writers I deeply admire, stewarding this project, I am so confident that Daisy and her band’s journey toward finding their voice will leave just as permanent a mark with viewers around the world as it did with me.”
