‘Vinyl’ Showrunner Terence Winter Leaves Series


After one season as showrunner behind the Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese-produced series Vinyl, Terence Winter is departing the show. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Winter will be replaced by executive producer Scott Z. Burns moving forward. Vinyl was renewed for a second season in February. “As we head into the second season of Vinyl, we have decided it is an appropriate time to make a change in the creative direction of the show,” HBO stated. “We have enjoyed a longtime partnership with Terry Winter at HBO on projects from The Sopranos to Boardwalk Empire to Vinyl, and we look forward to our next collaboration with him. We are pleased to welcome Scott Z. Burns, executive producer and showrunner, and Max Borenstein, executive producer, as the new team helming the show.” The ‘70s-set series starring Bobby Cannavale has struggled with ratings, gaining a modest 764,000 overnight viewers for its two-hour premiere in February. The ninth episode of the show’s first season will air April 10. Watch a preview, below.
