13 Songs - Musical Drama Series in Development at FOX


Press Release
Fox is going its own way with Mick Fleetwood.

The network is looking to the Fleetwood Mac co-founder to drum up its next drama series after putting 13 Songs into development from the musician, whose band was responsible for mega-records like Rumours.

The scripted project is written by Will Reiser, who wrote the Joseph Gordon-Levitt-fronted comedy feature 50/50, and Jonathan Prince, the American Soul creator who also exec produced Hulu’s adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral.

It will be directed by Jonathan Levine, who directed all eight episodes of Hulu’s Nine Perfect Strangers. Fleetwood will lend his creative and musical voice to 13 Songs, which follows rock legend Jasper Jones and his band, The Grift, who once made music that spoke to a generation of Americans, but not anymore. Decades later, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, Jasper is given only a few months to live. As a final love letter to his fans, he reconnects with his band to write and record 13 final songs and leave his mark on the world forever.
