From The Sun online:-
KISS star Gene Simmons’ Osbournes-style reality show is to be screened by the Biography Channel.

Gene Simmons' Family Jewels features the rocker, 57, at home with his partner ex-Playboy centrefold Shannon Tweed, 49, and their kids Nick, 17, and Sophie, 14.

The family show will be in sharp contrast to his image as a hell raising rock star who claims to have slept with more than 4,600 women.

The 13-parter which will be shown on the digital channel in early 2007 has strong echoes of MTV’s hit show The Osbournes which revitalised the careers of rocker Ozzy and X Factor wife judge Sharon.

Channel 4 showed Gene’s last series Rock School earlier this year.

Thanks to Jerr for the info.
