Overview

The true story of how two former child actors and a pair of struggling musicians got hired to appear on a TV series -- and became one of the biggest rock groups of the 1960s in the process -- is recounted in this made-for-cable feature. When a TV producer got the idea of taking the premise of A Hard Day's Night and turning it into a situation comedy, he hired Mickey Dolenz (Aaron Lohr), Davy Jones (George Stanchev), Mike Nesmith (Jeff Geddis), and Peter Tork (L.B. Fisher) to play the non-existent pop group The Monkees. When the TV show became an overnight smash, the "band" found themselves touring behind a string of hit singles. Soon the band found themselves in a battle with producers and TV executives to play their own music and control their own creative destiny. Daydream Believers: The Monkees Story also features Wallace Langham as music industry mogul (and later TV show host) Don Kirschner.
