    The Monkees officially broke up in 1970, two years after the show was canceled by NBC. Peter Tork had actually left at the end of 1968, using an opt-out clause in their original contract; Michael Nesmith left late in 1969, and had to pay a default of nearly $500,000. After the failure of the "Changes" album (featuring only Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones, standing back-to-back on the cover) Jones announced he was resuming his solo career, and a joke went around that Dolenz would continue on as "The Monkee".

    To cast the show, the producers placed an ad in Variety, which was answered by 437 hopefuls, all of whom were interviewed. The only one cast as a result of the ad, it turned out, was Michael Nesmith; Davy Jones was already under contract to Screen Gems, which wanted to place him in a series, while Micky Dolenz learned of the audition from his agent and Peter Tork had been referred by his friend Stephen Stills. The four actors selected had to take a six-week course in improvisational acting, taught on the set by director James Frawley.
