Steel Panther has pretty much never failed to make me laugh. The band’s music is equally well-performed and hilarious, the band’s individual and group personae are spot on for the time period they’re trying to replicate, and the humor is always executed well. So it’s pretty exciting that the group is getting its own comedy series, right?
According to C21 Media, the band has signed exclusive worldwide TV and digital rights to Media Range, who will develop a scripted comedy series about Steel Panther.
The series, which will be distributed globally by LA-based GRB Entertainment, will follow the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll-fueled lives of vocalist Michael Starr, lead guitarist Satchel, drummer Stix Zadinia and bassist Lexxxi Foxx. Between sell-out concerts, the band will also jet over to next month’s Mipcom in France, where they will perform an exclusive VIP acoustic show to invited television executives.
“Steel Panther is the perfect band to make the transition to TV. They’re unapologetically and hilariously irreverent. Their popularity transcends all age groups because their music is great. Steel Panther is in a class on its own,” said Media Ranch president Sophie Ferron. “They’ve been joined on stage by the likes of Miley Cyrus, Steven Tyler, Kelly Clarkson and many others so you can bet on many cameos by their celebrity friends in our series.”
No word on when this is due out, but we’re definitely looking forward to it. Maybe a new album will be a tie in to the series?
