Gettin' the Band Back Together follows Mitch Papadopolous, who always dreamed about being the next Bon Jovi. However, he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while, he thought he had everything — the high-paying job, the high-rise apartment — until his 40th birthday, when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his mom in Sayreville, New Jersey. When his high school archnemesis threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can…by winning the Battle of the Bands.
The cast of Gettin' the Band Back Together features Mitchell Jarvis (Mitch Papadopoulos), Jay Klaitz (Bart Vickers), Manu Narayan (Dr. Rummesh "Robbie" Patel), Paul Whitty (Michael "Sully" Sullivan), Sawyer Nunes (Ricky "Bling" Goldstein), Marilu Henner ("Mitch's Mom," aka Sharon Papadopoulos), Kelli Barrett (Dani), Becca Kötte (Tawney), Garth Kravits (Ritchie), Tamika Lawrence (Roxanne Velasco), Noa Solorio (Billie), and Brandon Williams (Tygen Billows).
