The New Monkees...Again?
Over at The Sun it is reported that Simon Fuller, the man behind such groups as the Spice Girls and S Club 7,will put together another group based on the Monkees. Click on The Sun to read the article. It tells how he plans to make it more raunchy then the original. It also gives an error filled background on the show. First they say the Monkees started out as a drama and became a reality-variety production. It was never a drama. It was always a comedy. They did try to make it a variety show but failed. They say that they starred for 5 years. The show only lasted from the fall of 1966 to spring of 1968. However, I will cut them some slack on that as the search started in 1965 and the group lasted till 1970.
I first heard of this in an alert from The Monkees Home Page.
Will this be as big a hit as the first series? Will it tank like the New Monkees did? I don't know but it will be fun to see.
