LOS ANGELES – January 19, 2016 – AXS TV presents season three of the popular reality series EX-WIVES OF ROCK, premiering on Wednesday, February 17, with back-to-back episodes at 9:00pE and 9:30pE. The 13-episode series will air each week with two originals for six weeks at 9 and 9:30pE, respectively. EX-WIVES OF ROCK is part of AXS TV’s Rock and Roll lineup, that also includes BREAKING BAND and the fan-favorite concert series LIVE FROM RED ROCKS.
EX-WIVES OF ROCK is the outrageous-but-true story of the former loves of some of rock and metal’s most notorious icons, as they fight to make a name for themselves, deal with real-life circumstances, and look for new romance. The cast is led by infamous model, music video goddess, and best-selling author Bobbi Brown, ex-wife of late Warrant frontman Jani Lane; and also includes Sharise Neill, ex-wife of Motley Crue star Vince Neill; Athena Kottak, ex-wife of Scorpions drummer James Kottak, and sister of Motley Crue figurehead Tommy Lee; and Susan ‘Blue’ Ashley, ex-wife of Warrant bassist Jerry Dixon. Shannon Tweed, the better half of KISS’ Gene Simmons, is the narrator for the series.
The series’ third edition finds Bobbi’s popularity at an all-time high following the success of her tell-all book DIRTY ROCKER BOYS. But, questionable hook-ups and angry relatives could throw a wrench in her rock n’ roll revival. Then, Sharise struggles to balance her blossoming romance with a successful dentist, with her ever-complicated family life. And Athena makes an earth-shattering decision that could change her life forever, while Blue returns from her sabbatical with a radical new business idea and some crazy stories to share.
“EX-WIVES OF ROCK gives viewers an intimate look into the lives and loves of women who were behind some of rock’s most successful musicians in the ‘80s, as they enter a new era determined to forge their own legacies and search for new romances,” said Michele M. Dix, AXS TV’s senior vice president, programming and development.
The series is produced by Tricon Films & Television, with Andrea Gorfolova, Jameel Bharmal, Marc Kell Whitehead, Lisa Brucker, Lorraine Lewis and Peter Mervis serving as Executive Producers.
