Viva S Club
Hollywood 7 was the third series in the BBC television series starring British pop group S Club 7 and the second television series shot in California.
The programme was shown every week on CBBC from September 25, 2001 and December 20, 2001 and starred all seven members of the band as themselves. The series also featured former Brady Bunch actor Barry Williams as Dean Strickland, S Club 7's manager.
In the first episode of the series, the band decide to give themselves 24 hours to get themselves a new manager. The group come across Dean Strickland and he adopts the band as their new manager.
Shortly into the series, the group find themselves without a record deal and so they have to search for a deal, or else they'll disband. Luckily, the group find a record company willing to sign them. Unlike Miami 7 and L.A. 7, which portrays the band as struggling just to make known of their existence, Hollywood 7 portarys the band's experiencing what they've been hoping for since they came to the States: having an agent, getting a record deal, becoming publicized, etc.
They film their first music video, become a support act for a Latin heart-throb, and even have their first concert. At the end of the series, the group have to move back to England to record their album and start internationally promoting S Club 7, just as they're starting to become fully assimilated into American life.
