ray-romano-hbo-mick-jagger-martin-scorsese-gi.jpgRay Romano set his eyes on a new TV series. The "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Parenthood" actor is joining HBO's 1970s rock 'n' roll pilot from executive producers Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger.

The Hollywood Reporter learned Romano will co-star as Zak Yankovich, a partner of Bobby Cannavale's character Richie. Richie is the "tough and savvy head of promotions of American Century with decades of experience dating back to the dark, mob-infested days of the recording business." Olivia Wilde, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid and Max Casella also star.

The untitled HBO series is based on an idea from Jagger, who last partnered with Scorsese on the 2008 documentary "Shine a Light." The show is "set in 1970s New York, and explores the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all told through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find a new sound."
