The Idol is set to follow “a female pop singer who starts a romance with an enigmatic L.A. club owner who is the leader of a secret cult,” and while HBO has not confirmed just exactly who Depp and The Weeknd are playing, it is believed that they will portray the female pop singer and the L.A. club owner, respectively.
The Idol is co-created by The Weeknd and Euphoria‘s Sam Levinson and marks both Depp and the XO Records head’s foray into live-action television. Depp recently starred in the sci-fi film Voyagers, while The Weeknd previously lent his voice to several actors in American Dad!
