We finally have an official trailer for “The Idol” starring the Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) and Lily-Rose Depp.  The upcoming HBO series comes from the creator of Uphoria, Sam Levinson.  The show is set against the backdrop of the music industry, where the Weeknd portrays some sort of self-help guru/leader of a modern day cult who’s in a complicated relationship with a rising pop idol (Depp.)

All we know so far is that the series will be released on HBO sometime this year.
