Vinyl co-creator Terence Winter leaves series over creative differences

Co-creator, executive producer and showrunner Terence Winter has been let go from HBO’s music-drama Vinyl over creative differences.

HBO said to Deadline in a statement that  “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”.

Feature film scribe Scott Z. Burns is set to step up and fill the showrunning duties that Winter leaves behind.

Burns will be supported by Vinyl‘s new executive producer Max Borenstein.

Vinyl stars Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Pax Casella, PJ Byrne, JC Mackenzie and James Jagger and is executive produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger. 

Vinyl airs on Foxtel Mondays at 3:30PM and 7:30PM.
