The trailer for Daisy Jones And The Six has absolutely stolen our hearts. Here’s what you need to know about the Prime Video series.
Based on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, it feels like we’ve been waiting forever for Prime Video’s much-anticipated new series, Daisy Jones & The Six.
And now, at long last, we have a teaser trailer for the glittering production – the story of which was absolutely inspired by Fleetwood Mac’s live performance of their album The Dance, which marked the return of the band in 1997 after their album Tango In The Night a decade earlier.
“When I decided I wanted to write a book about rock ‘n’ roll, I kept coming back to that moment when Lindsey watched Stevie [Nicks] sing Landslide,” says Reid in a post for Reese Witherspoon’s book club, Hello Sunshine.
“How it looked so much like two people in love. And yet, we’ll never truly know what lived between them.”

“I wanted to write a story about that, about how the lines between real life and performance can get blurred, about how singing about old wounds might keep them fresh,” Reid adds.
The trailer captures all of this energy perfectly. It’s serving 70s glam rock, it’s delivering major Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham vibes, and it, quite honestly, has left us desperate for more.
