If you live in the vicinity of 253 East Houston (at Suffolk), now is your chance to have your abode on the small screen. HBO sent its scouts to the Lower East Side this week with the goal of finding apartments for its highly-anticipated music series, Vinyl.

The crew is specifically looking for an “apartment with larger living room to film for one day scheduled now between October 5 and October 24 (not on weekends).” If interested, your place must be on the first or second floor of a pre-war tenement walkup, it being a period piece and all.

Vinyl is a drama series that follows fictitious record label honcho Richie Finestra in his quest to save the business at the dawn of punk and disco. Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and showrunner/writer Terrence Winter are executive producers on the project. It stars Bobby Cannavale in the lead role, Olivia Wilde, and Ray Romano. HBO ordered ten episodes for the first season.
