The Weeknd first said that he will be developing, executive producing, and co-writing a drama series for HBO on June 29, 2021. Principal photography for the programme took place in and around Los Angeles, California, in November 2021. The Weeknd’s co-headlining slot at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, however, forced the construction of the concert to temporarily cease in April 2022.
The Idol’s creative team has agreed upon a new creative approach as they continue to develop, hone, and grow their vision for the programme. According to them, “the production will be adjusting its cast and crew accordingly to best serve this new approach to the series.”
