[via press release from A&E]



Legendary rock star Gene Simmons and his unconventional family are back and better than ever for an all-new season of A&E's hit Real-Life series Gene Simmons Family Jewels, premiering with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, March 11th at 10:00 PM ET/PT. The 24 episode season kicks off with Gene preparing for the ultimate challenge � a lie detector test to determine if he has been faithful to Shannon Tweed, his "Happily UNmarried" companion of 24 years and the mother of his two children, Nick and Sophie.

A true test for the legendary ladies man, Gene will have to answer questions put forth by Shannon, as fans will find out if the 4,800 women Gene purports to have been with all occurred before 1983 � the year he and Shannon's relationship began. In addition to revealing the truth behind the rock star's storied sex life, the new season will feature a Gene Simmons Roast in which Gene gets verbally assaulted by friends and today's hottest comedians, the first ever KISS concert where the band performs as a trio, behind the scenes with Gene on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice, Gene and Shannon's official "Happily UNmarried" honeymoon in Hawaii, Nick and Sophie abroad in Mexico and much, much more.

From Hawaii to Mexico, follow the Simmons-Tweed clan as they set out to prove, yet again, why they are the most non-traditional, traditional family in America.

Leslie Greif, Adam Reed, Adam Freeman and Gene Simmons are the series executive producers. Gene Simmons Family Jewels is produced by The Greif Company and the Gene Simmons Company. Robert Sharenow and Neil A. Cohen are the A&E Executive Producers.
