What is Daisy Jones & the Six about?
The series follows the original story of the iconic 1970s band Daisy Jones & the Six, fronted by two feuding yet charismatic lead singers, Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin).
The official synopsis reads: Drawn together by personal and artistic chemistry, their complicated musical partnership catapulted the band from obscurity to unbelievable fame. Then, after a sold-out show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they suddenly called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members finally agree to reveal the truth.
