Coming to BBC America: Two millionaire playboys - one self-made, the other born into money - join forces as an unlikely crime-fighting team in the 1971 adventure series The Persuaders, airing as part of BBC AMERICA's retro cool Friday night line-up from November 5, 2004 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) is a brash, street-smart American and self-made millionaire from New York. Lord Brett Sinclair (Roger Moore) is an upper-crust member of the British Establishment, born into wealth and class - the very picture of social refinement.

Also: Academy Award-winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Moulin Rouge) and Hugh Laurie (Stuart Little, Maybe Baby) star in a colorful and eccentric view of adult life and love in Victorian London as seen through the eyes of a nine-year-old girl in BBC AMERICA's original comic movie premiere. The Young Visiters [sic], premieres Wednesday, November 3, 2004 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Based on the much-loved Victorian novel, written in 1890 by Daisy Ashford, who wrote (and famously misspelled) the tale when she was just nine-years-old, the comic drama centers on two gentlemen - Alfred Salteena (Jim Broadbent) and Lord Bernard Clark (Hugh Laurie) - as they compete for the favors of a young lady, Ethel Monticue (Lyndsey Marshal, The Hours, The Gathering Storm).

Jim Broadbent, who is also executive producer, explains: "The story is told through the eyes of a nine-year-old girl and is her naïve, but startlingly perceptive and very funny, view of the English class system, the foolishness of adults and the power that young, pretty girls have over men."

From the Monolators: A little reminder that we're going to be playing at the Lava Lounge tonight (Tuesday) at 10:30. Cover is 5 smackers. For those of you who haven't been there before, it's at 1533 North LaBrea in Hollywood, 90028. That's between Sunset and Hollywood Blvd, almost on the corner of Sunset in a little strip mall (on the West side of the street).

We'll be playing new material, including our questionable version of "Dancing Queen." So that should be somewhat interesting...
