S Club’s first TV series, ‘Miami 7’, is finally available on BBC iPlayer.
The show – which first aired on CBBC between April and June, 1999 – introduced the band to the world, with all seven members of the group star as fictionalised versions of themselves.
During each episode, they performed one of the songs from their first album, ‘S Club’ (1999).
Having wrapped the UK leg of their ‘Good Times’ 25th anniversary reunion tour, which arrives in the US in February, the group has struck a deal for the show to be available to stream on the platform.
During their initial run, S Club also had TV series in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Barcelona, and after releasing These Are The Days – their first single in 20 years – Jon Lee confirmed plans to head back into the studio in 2024.
“There will definitely be new music next year. We don’t know what it is yet, but that’s something we’ve all talk about,” Jon Lee told US TV show Today.
Meanwhile, Tina Barrett suggested the group could also return to their onscreen origins in the near future, adding: “And we’ve always done TV stuff. So yeah, maybe a documentary, who knows.”
Appearing on the cover of RETROPOP’s October issue, S Club opened up about their return to recording and shared how the process has changed over the past two decades, with producer John Nathaniel dialling in from Canada.
“We had him on Zoom while we were in the booth, giving us notes,” said Bradley McIntosh. “But he was controlling the whole set from Canada, which was very new to us.”
These Are The Days was the first song the band was presented with while selecting a comeback track, with Jo speculating there may be more where that came from.
“I’m not sure how many different songs were in the mix, so who knows what other songs there are gonna be in the future – I’m sure there’ll be a few knocking around that will be interesting to have a go at,” she hinted.
