Mick Jagger’s son James has been cast in his dad’s new rock ‘n’ roll drama, opposite Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde.

The untitled TV project from the Rolling Stones frontman, Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter follows the exploits of a record executive played by Cannavale in 1970s New York City.

Wilde will play his wife, while James Jagger will portray the lead singer of a punk band, and actor-comedian Clay will play a cocaine-snorting radio station boss.

Production on the pilot is currently underway in New York, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
