Producers Scott Neustadter and Lauren Neustadter first came across the unpublished manuscript for ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’ when Scott, a music aficionado, was given an early copy of the book. He was immediately captivated and recommended it to his wife Lauren, who had recently joined Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine production company.
Though there was competition for the rights, Lauren strategically acquired them by pitching directly to Witherspoon, who was swayed by Scott’s vision for a TV adaptation. The characters were then aged down so younger actors like Riley Keough, who stars as Daisy Jones, could portray the flash forwards.
Production was delayed over a year by COVID-19 shutdowns. But this time allowed the cast to become a real band and build authentic chemistry. Overcoming the challenge of creating period-accurate music was key.
Despite postponements, the completed series has earned acclaim and multiple Emmy nominations, including for Outstanding Drama. This success has the passionate producers hoping for more Daisy Jones & The Six content, including live concerts and a potential Season 2.
Though nothing is confirmed yet, the Neustadters seem eager to continue the band’s journey, often brainstorming ideas with author Taylor Jenkins Reid. More music and episodes would undoubtedly thrill fans of this breakout drama.
After collaborating closely on ‘Daisy Jones’, the couple is also open to re-teaming on another project, valuing their successful creative partnership. Wherever the story goes next, the Neustadters’ dedication could drive this fictional band to new heights.
