Gene Simmons Family Jewels World Premiere Monday, August 7, 2006 at 10 & 10:30pm/9 & 9:30c

[via press release from A&E]



Dad is Gene Simmons � the legendary, tongue wagging demon of KISS. Mom is Shannon Tweed -- former Playmate of the Year, actress and model. And their kids, Nick and Sophie, are, well...surprisingly charming, well-behaved teenagers dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, even though Mom and Dad are truly like no one else�s parents. A&E Network presents the original series premiere of GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS on Monday August 7, 2006 with back-to-back episodes at 10 & 10:30PM//9 & 9:30C.

Gene and Shannon have been happily UNmarried for 22 years and have no plans of getting married any time soon. Gene is a multi-millionaire rock star and a multi-media magnate. He is a renowned ladies man � but also the kind of dad who brings Gatorade to his daughter's soccer games and stands in the front row when his son's rock band plays gigs. Each episode reveals another layer of Gene�s private self, a side that he has kept hidden until now, and shows how the most non-traditional, traditional family in America manages to make it all work under the strangest of circumstances. Funny, loving, often at odds, this is a real life extraordinary family -- but one that we can all identify with.

Gene Simmons is co-founder of KISS, a band which has broken box office records worldwide set by Elvis and the Beatles and which has 2,500 licensed and merchandised products from KISS VISA cards, to KISS condoms (www.GENESIMMONS.com). Gene also runs Simmons Records, Simmons Audio Visual, Gene Simmons Game magazine. He is Chairman of a forthcoming television network, and is busier than ever in another of his new ventures: SIMMONS ABRAMSON MARKETING, which handles worldwide branding/marketing and branding for the Indy Racing League.

Nancy Dubuc, Robert Sharenow, and Didi O�Hearn are the A&E Executive Producers. Gene Simmons, Leslie Greif, and Adam Reed are the series executive producers. GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS is produced for A&E Network by The Greif Company/A Day With, Inc and the Gene Simmons Company.
