About Million Dollar Quartet

“Set in Memphis during the tumultuous early days of the civil rights movement, Million Dollar Quartet (working title) tells the untold true story of the birth of rock ‘n’ roll. Guided by Sam Phillips, young musicians like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins combined the styles of hillbilly country with the 1950s R&B sound and changed the course of music forever. The series chronicles these young artists’ often jarring and sudden meteoric rise to fame in the face of sweeping political change and social unrest.” CMT
