Storyline

A recording contract: It's the brass ring for every rock band. And now Beyond Gravity, a group fronted by charismatic singer-songwriter-guitarist Lance and his hard-living younger brother Mike, and managed by their boyhood pal Ben, have finally grabbed theirs. It promises to be everything the three guys have worked for since high school, and when they leave their hometown of Austin, Texas to record for Los Angeles indie label Rage Records, Lance vows to his wife--Beyond Gravity's beautiful bass player Chelsea--to stay focused on the things that really matter: "It's all about the music. We're not gonna let anything screw it up." After almost a year of rehearsing and recording, however, there's still no release, no tour, no video. Part of the delay is due to Mike's growing substance addictions and subsequent stretches in rehab. Rage Records president Jerry Tollman tells Ben he's reluctant to spend more money on the band when it can all go south in a flash. When Mike is busted for heroin... Written by LJC

Rock N' Roll Lifestyle
3 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

The producers of "Behind the Music" can only fantasize about a story like that of Beyond Gravity, the faux rock group depicted in "At Any Cost", a made-for-cable drama that premiered on VH1 in August 2000. With dreadful things befalling every band member (save the drummer, who is fairly quiet and sits in back), Beyond Gravity is about an incurable disease short of appearing on Lifetime instead of VH1. But then, a bit of excess is appropriate for TV movies (and rock and roll, for that matter).

Besides, Glenn Quinn's turn as the band's overly ambitious manager Ben deserves to be seen. Always an engaging actor, Quinn seems to relish his role as - by one character's estimation - "a vicious bastard". You'll relish it too, and that's reason enough to watch.
