Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Comprised of equal parts comedy, drama, and wry cynicism, this six-episode British series chronicled the exploits of a bunch of Glasgow-born kids who hoped to make it big in show business. The young would-be pop idols included Jez (Ciaran McMenamin), Fiona (Simone Lahbib), Psycho (Duncan Marwick), Joe (Nicola Stapleton), Wullie (Stephen McCole), and Ossie (Frank Gallagher). Though the younger cast members were talented and personable, the series was handily stolen by Forbes Masson as the kids' wheeler-dealer agent Art Stilton. The winner of the Royal Television Society's Best Drama serial award, The Young Person's Guide to Becoming a Rock Star originally aired from November 10 to December, 15, 1998.
