The Who are at the ‘in talks’ phase on co-producing a new eight-part drama series inspired by swingin sixties London.

According to Screen Daily, lead singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend will oversee the score to the inevitably-titled ‘Mods & Rockers’, also working with Bill Curbishley, who produced ‘Quadrophenia’ in 1979.

The show’s director Simon West, who is also responsible for both ‘Con Air’ AND the video for Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, says: “We’re not remaking ‘Quadrophenia’ but it’s that kind of world”, adding: “It will cover the rockers’ side of the story and will spill out into the wider world of swinging 1960s London”.
