The child star who was left behind is about to get her moment to shine in this swoony romantic comedy inspired by a unique, beloved facet of pop culture history: the Mickey Mouse Club.
Holly Danner has a complicated relationship with fame. It’s not easy being the only cast member of a 1990s song-and-dance show who didn’t become famous. When she was 11, she used to do anything for a laugh (or at least a laugh track) on Diego and the Lion’s Den. If she talked about it – which she almost never does – Holly might explain how her childhood best friends came to dominate the worlds of pop music, film, and TV while she was relegated to a few near-misses and a nanny gig for her niece. She’d even be telling the truth about making peace with the whole thing years ago.
But when she finds out there’s a 25th anniversary for the show planned – a televised reunion, clip show, and panel – and she wasn’t invited, it’s time for an impromptu road trip to crash the event and set the record straight. Three problems: She’s currently in Internet Rehab (perhaps she’s not quite as well-adjusted as she believes…), she has no cash, and the only person who can get her across the country in time is Thom Parker, a handsome, infuriatingly levelheaded patient who doesn’t think she should confront her famous ex-friends.
Fame Adjacent is a contemporary, realistic, and humorous look at love, friendship, and fame, as seen through the eyes of a girl who lived it – from the sidelines.
