TV Movie About Fictional Heavy Metal Singer To Air In September

According to The Futon Critic, the ABC Family cable channel will air a telefilm called "Pop Rocks!" focusing on Jerry Harden (Gary Cole), "a respectable banker and family man in his 40s, who is about to be haunted by his deepest, darkest secret…he was the lead singer of the biggest heavy metal band of the '80s, ROCK TOXIN. At the height of their success, Jerry fell in love with Allison (Sherilyn Fenn) and sharply cut his ties to the band without looking back. Now Jerry is offered the chance to reunite with the band for one final concert and a substantial paycheck that would allow him to send his son to a private school so he'll stop hanging out with his bad-influence, 'garage-band friends.' Jerry convinces himself he can rehearse and perform the concert without ever revealing his former identity to his family and friends. Let the deception begin." Directed by Ron Lagomarsino ("The Brotherhood of Poland, New Hampshire") and teleplay by William Ryan and Dan Berendsen. Patricia Clifford ("The Elizabeth Smart Story") serves as executive producer with Jackie George ("Full Court Miracle") as producer. The program is set to air Sunday, September 12 at 8:00/7:00c.
