SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - June 19, 2018 - PRLog -- The four daughters of The Monkees' Davy Jones announced today that they have formed a production company. Along Came Jones Media is dedicated to honoring Jones' legacy by developing projects that showcase his work as an actor, singer, songwriter, and artist.

Jones is best known for singing, playing tambourine, and falling in love on the ground-breaking musical sitcom The Monkees, which ran on NBC from 1966-68. Much more than a 1960s pop sensation however, Jones enjoyed success on radio, television, and the stage as a child in his native England. He also apprenticed as a jockey before coming to the United States to pursue opportunities as an actor.

Arriving in New York City in 1963, Jones received rave reviews as the Artful Dodger in the original Broadway production of Lionel Bart's Oliver! This success led to more stage work, and eventually a contract with Screen Gems, where he was ultimately cast in The Monkees in late 1965.

His daughters say that they're looking forward to sharing more with fans about their father's depth as an artist through Along Came Jones. "Most people know Dad as a singer and actor, but he was also a very talented artist, writer, and photographer," says his eldest daughter, Talia Jones Roston. Roston and her sisters, Sarah Jones McFadden, Jessica Cramer Jones, and Annabel Jones will be developing a wide variety of projects inspired by the archives he left to them after his passing in 2012.

Sarah Jones McFadden says that her father's archives are full of unexpected treasures. "He left behind a lot of surprises and gems that are going thrill his fans in the years to come," she says. "The primary focus for us, however, is to develop projects in a way that does him justice as an artist, and that would make him proud."

The first project being developed by Along Came Jones Media is a book, expected to be available in the second half of 2018. Updates and information will be available on the company's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Along-Came-Jones-Media-191157554...), and on its website, alongcamejonesmedia.com (http://www.alongcamejonesmedia.com/).

Along Came Jones Media was created to develop projects that showcase the work and preserve the legacy of actor, singer, songwriter, and artist David Thomas "Davy" Jones. Learn more and come say hello at alongcamejonesmedia.com (http://www.alongcamejonesmedia.com/).
