VH1 Begins Production of Exclusive Original Movies ‘The Monkees: Daydream
Believers’ and ‘Out Of Sync’
‘The Monkees: Daydream Believers’ Brings True Story Of ’60s TV Teen Pop
Idols To The Screen; Fictional Rock & Roll Comedy ‘Out Of Sync’ Stars Gail
O’Grady, Kari Wuhrer and Peter Outerbridge

NEW YORK, March 21 /PRNewswire/ — VH1 has begun production on two
exclusive original made-for-TV movies, “Daydream Believers: The Monkees
Story” and “Out of Sync,” it was announced today by Jeff Gaspin,
Executive Vice President, Programming and Production, VH1. Both films are
being shot on location in Toronto and will premiere on VH1 in June 2000.

“With these two new productions now in front of the cameras, VH1 revisits
the real story behind America’s original boy band — The Monkees — and
also puts a fresh comic spin on today’s image-obsessed music business in
”Out of Sync,“ said Gaspin.

“Daydream Believers: The Monkees Story” tells the dramatic true story of
the four young actors/musicians cast in the phenomenally popular ’60 TV
series, and the problems that eventually arise when they start believing
they’re the real thing. George Stanchev plays Davy Jones, Jeff Geddis
portrays Mike Nesmith, L.B. Fisher (“Felicity”) is Peter Tork, and Aaron
Lohr plays Mickey Dolenz. Ron McGee wrote the screenplay which is directed
by Neill Fearnley. Howard Braunstein and Harold Bronson are Executive
Producers. “Daydream Believers: The Monkees Story” is produced by
Peeblehut Production in association with Rhino Films.

“Out of Sync” is an original contemporary comedy about a down-and-out
record producer who discovers a housewife with an extraordinary voice, but
uses her recorded vocals to boost the career of an untalented diva-wannabe.
Gail O’Grady (three-time Emmy Award nominee for “NYPD Blue,” “Deuce
Bigalow: Male Gigolo”), Kari Wuhrer (“Sliders,” “Anaconda,” “Beverly
Hills 90210”) and Peter Outerbridge (“Mission to Mars,” “Cool
Runnings”) star. Directed by Graeme Campbell, “Out of Sync” is produced
by Hearst Entertainment. Anne Carlucci and Marian Brayton are Executive

Lauren Zalaznick is VH1 Senior Vice President of Original Programming and
Development; Michael Larkin is VH1’s Vice President of Motion Pictures for

Fom: “Caroline Rouleau”

Hi there~! I found this link to Aron Lohr. He’s the actor that will be
playing Micky in the VH1 movie. Like Micky, Aron was a child actor,
appearing in Denice Benson’ 1980’s video, “Let’s hear it for the Boys.” He
played the role of Portman in the “Mighty Ducks” movies, and more recently
appeared in a Gap commercial. Check him out here:
