"Rock god, Demon or Dad? Who says you have to choose?
Take an unprecedented look into the (surprisingly normal) life of a rock ‘n roll icon with GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS. The new real-life A&E family series steps into the home of the legendary, tongue-wagging rocker demon of KISS and Shannon Tweed, former Playmate of the Year, actress, model and mom. Gene and Shannon have been happily UNmarried for 23 years and have no plans to get married anytime soon. Their kids, Nick and Sophie, are surprisingly charming, well-behaved teenagers dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, even though Mom and Dad are like no one else’s parents on earth. Yes, Gene is a world-famous rock star and multi-media magnate, but he’s also the kind of dad who brings Gatorade to his daughter’s soccer games and stands in the front row of his son’s rock band when they play gigs.
Get to know a side of Gene that he has kept hidden from the world at large until now, and see how the most non-traditional family in America manages to make normal life work under the oddest of circumstances.
