The “Blinding Lights” singer debuted The Idol teaser trailer during his concert at New Jersey’s Met Life Stadium.
In her first appearance, Jennie and the other background dancers form artful shapes around Depp; in the K-pop star’s second scene in the trailer, she wears a distressed gray crop top and black shorts, and is fully immersed in the intricate hand movements of a different dance. Toward the end of the trailer, Jennie swaps choreographed moves for carefree ones at a party.
The A24 series marks Depp’s first major TV lead role, as well as Tesfaye’s. And The Idol cast boasts more beloved musicians in Troye Sivan and TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe (Spider-Man: Homecoming).
Other cast members include Suzanna Son (Red Rocket), Melanie Liburd (Power Book II: Ghost), Steve Zissis (Togetherness), Elizabeth Berkley Lauren (Showgirls), Nico Hiraga (Moxie), Anne Heche (The Brave).
While there is an official teaser now, an exact release date for The Idol has not yet been confirmed.
