VH1 Starts Monkeyin' Around and Brings Back 'Love Monkey'

VH1 Saves the 'Monkey' on Tuesday, April 11 by Airing the First Three Episodes of 'Love Monkey' From 7 P.M. to 10 P.M.

Five More Episodes, Never Before Seen, Will Premiere Exclusively on VH1 Every Tuesday Night at 9 P.M. Beginning April 18th

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 6 -- The people spoke and VH1 listened ... "Love Monkey" has found a new home on VH1. The hour long dramedy from CBS starring Tom Cavanagh will begin airing on VH1 starting Tuesday, April 11 with three back to back episodes beginning at 7 P.M.*. The five remaining, never before seen episodes will premiere every Tuesday at 9 P.M.* beginning April 18.

In this scripted series, Tom Cavanagh plays "Tom Farrell," a 30-something record executive navigating a career, romance and the surprises of everyday life. He finds himself burdened by the pressures of working in a highly commercialized industry when he's actually, truly in it for the music. Tom's group of close friends are always there to back him up and keep him grounded. Judy Greer plays the role of "Bran," Tom's best girlfriend who always tells it like it is, Jason Priestley plays his buddy "Mike" who happens to be married to Tom's pregnant sister "Karen" played by Katherine LaNasa and Larenz Tate is Tom's tough and quick-witted friend, "Shooter." Christopher Wiehl plays Tom's closeted gay best friend "Jake" who is a former baseball player turned sportscaster and Ivana Milicevic is "Julia," Tom's unflappable co-worker and love interest.

Young rising star and songwriting prodigy Teddy Geiger plays a regular role as "Wayne," an up and coming artist signed to Tom's record label. Music performances and guest appearances include James Blunt, LeAnn Rimes, Natasha Bedingfield, Ben Folds, Aimee Mann, the "Late Show with David Letterman's" Paul Shaffer and more.

"'Love Monkey' has found a perfect home at VH1," said Tom Calderone, Executive Vice President and General Manager, VH1. "The storyline is tailor made for the VH1 audience who enjoys stories and appreciates music from up- and-coming artists that are featured in the series, many of whom were introduced on VH1, including Teddy Geiger."
