Rock N’ Roll TV

I just read about the following new show.  It could be amazing, or it could be terrible, I’m not sure.  However if it is awlful, I still have high hopes for Dee Snider’s “A Twisted Christmas” coming to Broadway this December…………

Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW) and Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER) are among the musicians who make guest appearances on “Z Rock”, the new original series coming to IFC uncensored, uncut and commercial-free on Sunday, August 24 for ten hilarious episodes.

This semi-scripted comedy series follows a group of musicians leading a double life: by night they’re a hard-partying rock band, by day a Wiggles-style kids’ birthday band. “Z Rock” is loosely based on the real lives of its three New York-based stars, brothers Paulie Z and David Z, and friend Joey Cassata who form an actual band, Z02.

The series explores the dark underbelly of the rock ‘n’ roll dream, giving its audience a back stage pass to the band’s struggles to become rock royalty, which is often interrupted by pangs of reality — hangovers, grooming techniques, kids’ birthday parties, and avoiding scorned female fans and their angry husbands. Like the true rock gods they aspire to become, the band snags plenty of insatiable groupies and moms gone wild along the way, with hilarious and sometimes cringe-worthy results.

“This show is so hip — and that’s the first time in 40 years I’ve said the word hip not followed by replacement,” said Joan Rivers. “I’m thrilled to have a recurring role on ‘Z Rock’. This is the first time in 20 years three single guys want to see me every week. These are the cutest boys in the music industry, so long as you don’t look in Michael Jackson‘s bedroom.”
