Actor Nicholas Braun is Developing a New HBO Series on the ’00s Indie Music Scene

The actor made a name for himself in the ‘Succession’ TV series

Actor Nicholas Braun, who played cousin Greg on HBO’s hit TV series Succession, is working with that network again.

As a number of outlets are reporting, this time around, he is developing a series around the “Meet Me in the Bathroom” era early-’00s indie music scene that gave us The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, etc. Variety reports that the series, which is co-created by Braun and Chris Buongiorno (a producer on the two most recent Spider-Man movies), is called One for the Road and is described as a “candid and intimate story of a talented but dysfunctional band struggling to survive the rapidly changing landscape of independent music in the early 2000s.”

No word on when One for the Road will start filming, or who will be in the cast, but Braun wrote on Instagram, “If anybody wants us to join their band for research please let us know.”

Deadline adds that this is not the only upcoming show set against the world of the early-’00s scene. City on Fire is a new series from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who made The OC and Gossip Girl (and its current reboot). It’s a series adaptation of Garth Risk Hallberg’s 2015 novel of the same name which was set in 1970s NYC. The timeline has been moved to 2003 and is being made for AppleTV+.
