The Rolling Stones are hoping for satisfaction after agreeing to work with TV producers on a major series about the band’s early years.

The script for The Stones is being overseen by Nick Hornby, author of Fever Pitch and High Fidelity, and will be based around anecdotes from group members including Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

The band, whose hits include (I Can’t get No) Satisfaction and Jumpin’ Jack Flash, have given permission for their music to feature. Sources claimed the fee for their involvement will have been “eye-watering”.

The production will track the band from its formation through to 1972. The project is at an early stage and sources said that it was unlikely to be screened until 2023.

The band are still going strong almost 60 years after their formation and the group’s latest world tour generated more than £310 million in ticket sales.

The combined fortune of current members Jagger, Richards, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarist Ronnie Wood has been estimated at more than £500 million.

Jagger, 77, has reportedly been reluctant to previously engage in biographical projects, returning a £1m advance to one publisher in the 1980s after deeming the drafts to have been insufficiently scandalous.
