There’s so many productions right now that are based on true events. Is that the case with Daisy Jones and The Six? We’ve got the answer for you below!
Is Daisy Jones and The Six fiction or based on a real story?
The drama will portray the rise and fall of the fictional, titular rock band. That’s right. The musicians aren’t a real group. The story takes us back to the late ’70s when Daisy Jones (Keough) and Billy Dunne (Claflin), lead the band to success, per the synopsis. However after reaching those heights and experiencing sold-out shows, the band breaks up. Decades later, their fans are going to find out just why that happened.
While the story isn’t directly based on any true events, the author of the novel did share that the two main characters and their relationship is partly inspired by the tumultuous relationship between real-life singer Stevie Nicks and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.
Daisy Jones and The Six premieres Friday, March 3, 2023 on Prime Video.
