The author and BookTok sensation took to her Instagram on Friday to share some photos from the Amazon Prime series adaptation of “Daisy Jones & The Six.” Jenkins Reid has been extremely hands-on with the series’ development, and she expressed her excitement to soon see Daisy and her sidekicks come to life on the small screen!
The Lowdown on ‘Daisy Jones & The Six!’
OSSTET has been covering several parts of Daisy Jones’ long-awaited transition from page to screen!
Jenkins Reid’s books have gained legions of fans through their massive popularity on TikTok’s book sector, BookTok! Her 2017 novel “The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo” has also been adapted for the screen; Netflix has adapted the critically acclaimed novel into a movie!
Actress and head of production company Hello Sunshine, Reese Witherspoon, was extremely enthralled by Jenkins Reid’s “Daisy Jones & The Six” when he read it; “Hello Sunshine” helped produce the Amazon Prime adaptation.
In December, the streaming service released the first teaser trailer for the show, featuring famous names Riley Keough, Sam Claflin and Suki Waterhouse.
The chance to bring the story of Daisy and her bandmates to life has definitely been a highlight for the cast!
Keough, 33, gave an insight into the actors’ genuinely close relationship to Vanity Fair as she talked about their special, once-in-a-lifetime chemistry.
“I think when you love each other the way we do, it shows on the screen, you know? That’s why I’m glad people are going to see it, because it’s real, you know? It was a joyous experience. And it was something I really needed in my life at the time. I wanted to do something that made me feel joy,” she told the magazine. (per OSSTET)
Taylor Jenkins Reid hails his idea!
Jenkins Reid is pretty excited to see the bond between her characters translate to the screen!
She has documented several aspects of “Daisy Jones & The Six”‘s marketing, including its soundtrack; the soundtrack serves as an adaptation of Daisy Jones and the Sixers’ best-selling record ‘Aurora’.
According to Town and Country Magazine, the series will also include an additional 24 original songs, with vocals from the cast.
Of the album, Jenkins Reid said: “We finally have ‘Aurora’. A stunning, nostalgic, timeless album that captures the drama, pathos and yearning of the band’s zenith and nadir in one. A snapshot of time, intoxicating and dangerous. That delicious moment that you don’t know can be… Daisy Jones and the Six are real. And they’re better than my wildest dreams,” she concludes via a statement.
Jenkins Reid shared an Instagram carousel of photos from the series premiere, including a photo where she and Witherspoon are seen having a passionate conversation! Lots of cast photos on the black carpet are also included!
“I’m still buzzing this morning with the joy of sharing this story and this world with such an incredible group of people,” Jenkins Reid writes in her caption. “It took many writers, directors, actors, musicians, costume designers, set designers, producers, managers and so many more to make this show as outstanding as it is – and I loved the opportunity to celebrate them,” she continued.
“I’ve said before that if this book is my child, the adaptation is my grandchild. Very proud of my grandson tonight. Can’t wait for you to see her,” concludes Jenkins Reid.
