Synopsis

Miniseries about California Surf band, The Beach Boys, whose lyrics transformed the image of the West Coast for a generation of young Americans. The drama chronicles the early years of Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson; their cousin Mike Love; and friend Al Jardine. As teenagers, they went from humble beginnings in Southern California to fame and fortune in the 1960s and early 1970s. But behind the popular songs was the story of the struggles between the young men and their father/manager, the women they loved and each other.
