VH1 Classic Forges New Original Series 'That Metal Show' for Its Fall Line-Up Beginning on Saturday, November 15 at 11:00PM*

Eddie Trunk Leads Weekly Discussions of Hard Rock featuring Riotous Debates, 'Man-On-The Street' Pranks and 'Stump the Trunk' Trivia Contest

NEW YORK, Oct. 29 -- After November 15, all heavy metal and hard rock fans are going to be talking about "That Metal Show." VH1 Classic has mixed the best of "The View" with "Headbangers' Ball" to create "That Metal Show," an outrageously funny weekly series that discusses and debates everything in the world of metal.

Heavy Metal and Hard Rock bands undoubtedly have some of the most intense and dedicated fans in the music scene. Many debate -- and disagree over --which bands stand the test of time, and which are easily forgotten. "That Metal Show," premiering on VH1 Classic on Saturday, November 15 at 11:00 PM*, settles all arguments and even debates new ones. From Sabbath to Slayer to Dokken to Dio, "That Metal Show" covers all of the fist pumping, head banging, hard rock acts of the past 40 years.

Hosts Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine (Crank Yankers, Inside the NFL, Meet The Creeps) and Don Jamieson (Inside The NFL, Dice Undisputed, Meet The Creeps) discuss the latest rock news, share stories and argue about their favorite bands. Each week they will be joined by special guests who will weigh in with their opinions and offer their own unique viewpoints to each episode. Scheduled to appear the first season are rock legends Rush, Twisted Sister, Lita Ford, Ace Frehley of KISS and a very special appearance by former baseball star Mike Piazza. Whether they're arguing over the best British Metal Band of all time in "The Throwdown" or tracking down one of your favorite metal artists who disappeared in a "Whatever Happened To" segment, no topic is too small and no metal band is left behind.

But "That Metal Show" isn't just a roundtable discussion; it's about comedy too. Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson will hit the streets to connect and hang out with the fans ... and by "connect" we mean pull pranks on them. In one episode, they pull a fast one on fans outside a Van Halen concert by telling them that they have a direct line to the band backstage. The comedy continues in studio, as host Eddie Trunk takes on the metal maniacs in the studio audience in the "Stump the Trunk " metal trivia contest. If the audience can stump Eddie, they win a metal-worthy prize.

"That Metal Show" is a hilarious 30 minutes of mayhem that all fans of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal are bound to love! It is the perfect combination of music and comedy in one show. Tune in to VH1 Classic on November 15 at 11PM* to join the debate, and rock on!

"That Metal Show" is a production of VH1 Classic. David Diomedi serves as director with Lee Rolontz and Keshia Williams as executive producers for VH1 and Jeff Baumgardner producer for the series.
