Not Fade Away
Premiering April 30 on Rogers On Demand (Channel 100).
Not Fade Away tells the sweetly melancholic story of growing up in the 1960s. Four buddies start a basement cover band, chase girls, write a song that could land them a record deal, fall in and out of love, argue and fall apart – all to a classic soundtrack that drops the needle at just the right emotional moments (courtesy of The Sopranos and E Street Band band alumni Steven Van Zandt). James Gandolfini turns up as a working-stiff father who doesn’t quite get the pop culture revolution going on around him. This one falls somewhere between That Thing You Do! and Diner.
