"As we head into the second season of Vinyl, we have decided it is an appropriate time to make a change in the creative direction of the show," HBO said in a statement. "We have enjoyed a longtime partnership with Terry Winter at HBO on projects from The Sopranos to Boardwalk Empire to Vinyl, and we look forward to our next collaboration with him. We are pleased to welcome Scott Z. Burns, executive producer and showrunner, and Max Borenstein, executive producer, as the new team helming the show."
Opening to mixed reviews and executive-produced by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, Vinyl is a period drama exploring the world of rock 'n' roll in the 1970s. HBO renewed the show in February after its series premiere, which drew just 764,000 viewers.
