Jon Bon Jovi To Executive Produce a TV Series Called ‘If I Wasn’t a Rock Star’
Jon Bon Jovi is getting into the reality TV business. The singer has signed on to be one of the executive producers of a new series called If I Wasn't a Rock Star.
According to Variety, If I Wasn't a Rock Star will see musicians returning to their hometowns to see how their lives could have turned out if they had never pursued fame and fortune. In other words, it's like Bon Jovi is once again asking the question, "Who says you can't go home?" Only this time, he's brought cameras along.
"I was drawn to this project simply because it will be a celebration of the working men and women of this country," Bon Jovi said via press release. "They are the real rock stars."
Although it has yet be revealed which musicians are slated to appear on the program, which does not yet have a network to call home, the series has some other big names behind it. Film studio TWC-Dimension has brought in Prototype Entertainment to develop the series, and 3 Ball Entertainment, which has a history of reality TV success with shows like Extreme Weight Loss, Bar Rescue and Breaking Bonaduce, is also involved.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be teaming up with Jon Bon Jovi and the teams at Prototype and 3 Ball to bring If I Wasn’t a Rock Star to audiences,” gushed Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of TWC-Dimension. “The series will offer music fans a chance to see their favorite stars as they’ve never imagined them before. We can’t wait to see what other amazing talent comes on board.”
However, before production begins, they may have to make one major change. As Consequence of Sound properly notes, the show's title is grammatically incorrect. It should be named If I Weren't a Rock Star.
