Variety magazine reports that If I Wasn’t a Rock Star will be developed by The Weinstein Company, Prototype Entertainment and 3 Ball Entertainment, with Bob Weinstein also serving as an executive producer. “I was drawn to this project simply because it will be a celebration of the working men and women of this country. They are the real rock stars,” said Bon Jovi in a statement.
According to Weinsten, the series will give fans “a chance to see their favourite stars as they’ve never imagined them before. We can’t wait to see what other amazing talent comes on board”. The participating stars have yet to be announced.
While this may seem like an unusual detour from touring or recording music, you can be sure Jon Bon Jovi and his road weary band will not stay idle for long. This is just a small break from what the band does best, rock stadiums to their knees.
