Rock star Nikki Sixx from MÖTLEY CRÜE and TV actress wife Donna D'Errico are branching out into the world of television sitcoms with a show, titled The Blonde and The Rock Star. The sitcom, created by Sixx and D'Errico, is centered around a divorced Rock God with two kids who falls in love with a beautiful, blonde single mom who happens to be the judge presiding over his court case. The husband-wife team will produce.
"The concept of the show is loosely based on our lives," says Sixx. "Over the years, we have found a lot of humor in situations arising from having an oddly blended family and in dealings with our respective careers and the stereotypes that go along with them."
The Blonde and The Rock Star clearly illustrates the concept of "opposites attract" when the two fall in love despite the fact all they have in common is that they are both single parents. Series of hilarious events ensue when the couple's opposite worlds collide. "Although sometimes it seems all odds are against the union due to our different backgrounds, it is a perfect match," says D'Errico.
The sitcom's executive producers, veterans Mark Sennett and Alan Jacobs teamed up with the couple when introduced by managers Jordan Berliant and Carol Peters of Left Bank Management while working on The Go-Go's at ABC.
"Nikki, Donna, Alan and I are all very excited to collaborate on a project that reflects today's ever-changing television market. We feel we have a show concept that really pushes the envelope, yet will attract all the key demographics for the networks with the built in MÖTLEY CRÜE audience and a new younger audience hungry for edgier programming," says Senett.
The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band the autobiography of Sixx's band MÖTLEY CRÜE is a New York Times best seller and has just been released in paperback by Regan/Harper-Collins books. A film based on the book is currently in development at MTV Films.
