American Dreams (NBC 2002, Vanessa Lengies, Brittany Snow)



Period drama series In the early years of the 1960’s before the world discovered Psychedelia the Pryor family living in Philadelphia try to deal with their changing world. Daughter Meg (Brittany Snow) works in the studios of American Bandstand whilst father Jack owns a TV and Radio shop. Mother Helen is busy seeking a spot of independence for herself.

Making heavy use of the TV show American Bandstand the show features at least two contemporary artists performing each week as a vintage star on the Bandstand set whether it Usher as Marvin Gaye, Michelle Branch as Lesley Gore or LeAnn Rimes as Connie Francis. Created by Jonathan Prince the show is as much about the changing face of America in the 1960’s as it is a drama about family life.
