HBO has unveiled the first glimpse into their upcoming drama series, The Idol.
Created by The Weeknd and Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, The Idol is a series that follows a self-help guru and cult leader, played by the 'Blinding Lights' act, and his relationship with an up-and-coming pop star played by Lily-Rose Depp. Described to chronicle "the sleaziest love story in all of Hollywood", the series is said to have six seasons and is set to premiere later this year.
