    The television series that casts modern music stars as pop stars of the
    Any word on whether all the original music will be intact? Some shows have had
    to substitute a lot of new music, with disappointing results.

    Looks like the original music was licensed with a DVD in mind. From the
    studio announcement I received:

    "An evocative series set against the memorable, upbeat sounds of the 1960's,
    American Dreams depicts a more innocent America, bracing for cultural
    turbulence ahead, as seen through the youthful Pryor family. 16-year-old Meg
    Pryor (Snow) pursues her dreams of dancing on Dick Clark's "American
    Bandstand", allowing the series to showcase performances from today's
    hottest music artists appearing as 1960's music icons. All 25 episodes from
    the first season, including extended director's cut episodes featuring full
    length musical performances from artists like Usher, Ashanti, Kelly Rowland
    of Destiny's Child, Michelle Branch, Vanessa Carlton, India.Arie and many

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks. I would think current shows are including the possibility of a DVD
    release when they originally license the music.
