Pop Rocks Not Just A Candy

While flipping between the Olympics (NBC) and Who's Line Is It Anyways (ABC Family), I learned of a mildly interesting new show in September (starts on the 10th at 8pm) on ABC Family. It's called Pop Rocks and stars actor Gary Cole of Office Space Lumbergh fame ("Milt, we're gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?" - link) as a former rock star who is invited to reunite with the other members and perform one final concert for a heap of moolah. The catch? None of his family or friends knows about his secret past. (Production Release here).

The show probably wouldn't have caught my eye except for Lumbergh, I mean Gary Cole. Because he's starring in it, I might just tune in for the first episode or two. It's Lumbergh!!!

ADDENDUM: My reaction to/review of the movie can be found here. Cheers! [12:16 AM, 9-11-04]
