Hey, hey The Monkees are back
Published: 16 Oct 2008

POP svengali Simon Fuller is bringing back telly classic The Monkees =97
and giving it a raunchy modern twist.
And hey, hey =97 producers are already on the hunt for four hunky surfer
dude types to play an updated version of the original boyband.

The lucky lads will become the new Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael
Nesmith and Peter Tork, who set teenage girls’ hearts racing in the

The foursome starred as the boy-next-door band for five years from
1965 with hits such as Daydream Believer.

Their show started out as a scripted drama but eventually turned into
a reality-variety production after the lads tired of the corny

Eventually The Monkees became so popular they began to call the shots
=97 and play their own instruments.


Fuller, the man behind The Spice Girls and S Club 7, wants the new
Monkees to play their own instruments and effectively become a real
band. But unlike the squeaky clean original gang the new group will be
much more rock ‘n roll.

A show source said: “This will be The Monkees for the Gossip Girl
generation and a lot more raunchy.

“We are looking for some charismatic lads who are up for a bit of
mischief. The show will be much grittier than the original with more
sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll.”

Producers have already held open auditions in California as they seek
“great, offbeat character types with energy, charisma and humour”.

It is the second time that Fuller =97 who owns the rights to The Monkees
=97 has attempted to put together a revival show.

Five years ago he started work on The New Monkees but the idea was
scrapped after no broadcaster showed any interest.

The new show, which may not use the Monkees name, will launch in the
US before coming to Britain. Insiders said it was too early to say
which channel would take it up.

The Monkees, formed in LA, had a huge hit with their first album in
1966. There have been reunion tours.

But the group did not mark their 40th anniversary in 2006 and a
comeback with all members on stage seems unlikely.

It has been announced in local press & on thr Vocal Group’s Hall Of
