Dose of Poison for new VH1 series
EmptyPoison frontman Bret Michaels will be looking for love on VH1 in a new series from the producers of the network's hit "Flavor of Love."
The cable network is set to debut a 10-episode reality series titled "Rock of Love With Bret Michaels" in July. The show will feature Michaels looking for a woman who can keep up with his rock 'n' roll lifestyle and not become jealous of his one true passion — performing — which is said to be the reason for the destruction of most of his relationships.
The women, who will live with Michaels in his "Los Angeles rock palace," will be put through various challenges in a test of their devotion to him as well as their understanding of everything rock 'n' roll. Those who win these challenges will join Michaels on "wild and exclusive excursions," while "those who can't hang like true backstage VIPs will be escorted out in bona fide rock star fashion," VH1 said.
VH1 has found success with other series featuring celebrities looking for a soulmate, including "Flavor of Love" and "I Love New York," both of which have set ratings records for the network.
"Rock of Love" is created and executive produced by Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego for Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures, who also produce "Flavor of Love" and "I Love New York" as well as VH1's "The Surreal Life" and "My Fair Brady." Ben Samek also executive produces.
Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly, Leah Horwitz and Michael Hirschorn oversee the series for VH1.
