GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS RETURNS TO A&E FOR AN ALL-NEW SEASON

SEASON FIVE WILL MARK THE 100TH EPISODE OF THE HIT REAL-LIFE SERIES

NEW SEASON PREMIERES SUNDAY, MARCH 21 AT 9 PM ET/PT WITH A SPECIAL ONE-HOUR EPISODE

New York, NY, February 10, 2010 � Legendary rock god and multi-hyphenate Gene Simmons returns with his unconventional family for an all-new season of A&E's hit unscripted series "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," premiering with a special one-hour episode on Sunday, March 21 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Season five, which will cross the 100th episode threshold, begins with a terrifying moment for America's most traditional, non-traditional family. Shannon has a health scare that makes the family rally and Gene is caught between two worlds � being there for the mother of his two children and being on tour with KISS.

Recent docu-series featuring a family dynamic have proven to tear families apart, but the Simmons-Tweed clan just keeps growing closer together. The new season will give viewers a behind the scenes look at the family's many adventures and milestone moments that make them so cohesive. From Sophie's high school graduation, to Gene's 60th and Nick's 21st birthdays, this is going to be a very emotional year for Gene and Shannon as both their children are fast becoming adults.

With everything going on at home, KISS has been in the midst of a two year, sold out world tour, celebrating 35 years of rocking the planet. Viewers will be meeting up with Gene in several cities that KISS plays on its American leg of the tour and get unprecedented all-access. The family also spends more time on the road with Gene. The Demon's touring schedule didn't allow much at home time with the kids when they were younger, but this time, the plan is to keep the family close.

His goal during the tour is to fulfill his obligations but not miss important family moments as he serves two masters - KISS and family.

In addition, this season will feature Nick playing with KISS members Tommy Thayer (Lead Guitar), Eric Singer (Drums) and dad on bass at Comic-Con for the launch of his newest graphic novel, Incarnate, which Nick both wrote and drew, Sophie looking at colleges, Gene touring his roots in New York City, and much more.

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.
