The New Partridge Family
"The Partridge Family," a TV hit from 1970-1974, chronicled the adventures of America's beloved pop star family. Today's version of "The Partridge Family" tells an updated story of the musically talented group who have their own unique and uncompromising way of realizing their rock 'n roll dreams. The pilot episode will introduce and follow the family as they embark on all new adventures.
Keith Partridge (Leland Grant), manager of the family band, tries desperately to land their first gig. Little brother Danny (Spencer Tuskowski) doesn't think Keith is a good manager, so he secretly shops out the family demo to Hollywood agents. By accident, Danny manages to score an audition for family representation with a slick major industry agent, Reuben Kincaid, played by French Stewart, of "Third Rock from the Sun."
During their performance, Reuben barely pays attention, but soon changes his tune after he is fired from his high profile employer. He hurries to the Partridge family house and decides to represent them. He is taken in by the family and helps out in their first real gig. An unexpected treat is also in store when Papa Partridge (a surprise star cameo!), not seen in the original series, stops in to see how the family is doing.
