He sang his way into the hearts of millions, but few knew the inside story
Ricky Nelson, the first pop star to be beamed into our homes via a hit TV show, is uncannily brought to life by actor Gregory Calpakis, who capture Ricky's talent, appealing smile, and genuine love for music in this fascinating biopic. Growing up in public on the Ozzie and Harriet Show, Ricky struggles to find his own identity in the shadow of his father Ozzie (brilliantly portrayed by Jamey Sheridan). Off the set Ricky must fight for the music he wants to make and the girl he loves. When the culture changes in the 60's and he's no longer on top of the charts, he has to reinvent himself again. A rare peek behind the scenes at the little known story behind the much-loved star.
