The Weeknd is currently on the road for the first leg of his "After Hours Til Dawn" stadium tour, and in the midst of all of his concert buzz, he's taking the time to shed light on his newest acting venture. THE IDOL — a new drama series that will be available to watch on HBO MAX — stars the Canadian pop artist and Lily-Rose Depp and has just released its first official trailer.

This newest initiative has been co-created, written and executive-produced by Sam Levinson — the maker of Euphoria — The Weeknd, and Reza Fahim. In November of last year, the show's director Amy Seimetz stated that, "THE IDOL, set against the backdrop of the music industry, centers on a self-help guru and leader of a modern-day cult, who develops a complicated relationship with an up-and-coming pop idol.” The wild trailer exhibits the stars in the thick of a debaucherous lifestyle consumed by drugs, money and sex, and even describes the show as "the sleaziest love story."

Peep the full clip here above and expect the show to stream on HBO MAX soon.
