Tommy Lee is running a new project with Syfy. He will soon have his own reality show called "Culture Shock with Tommy Lee". According to Entertainment Weekly on Monday, March 21, the premise of the show is that the former drummer of Motley Crue will travel with an investigative team who will try to unlock the mysterious secrets of some previously unknown "secret societies".
Following NBC's six-episode run of "Tommy Lee Goes to College" in 2004, in which the tattooed rocker attended the University of Nebraska and tried out for school's marching band, Lee will attempt to uncover rituals, symbols and other mysteries of secret societies. Lee will engage himself in the history of each society, meet with former members and participate in their ceremonies.
Of the show, the former husband of Heather Locklear says, "This is the first show that I've been a part of that will blow our minds and reveal things that will explain almost all our questions. I'm very excited to be partnering with Syfy on this show. It's going to be an amazing experience for all involved."
The series, which will feature one-hour episodes, is produced by ITV Studios America. Lee himself will serve as executive producer along with Carl Stubner.
Meanwhile, "Culture Shock With Tommy Lee" represents Syfy's latest expansion into the reality space. The network has been broadening its sci-fi mandate to embrace different genres of programming in the past year, including the cooking show "Marcel's Quantum Kitchen", which premieres Wednesday night, March 23.
