VH1 Goes Back to School Each Friday Night Beginning August 19

Gene Simmons Teaches Kids How to Rock in the New VH1 Series "Gene Simmons' Rock School" Premiering Friday, August 19 at 11PM*

Tommy Lee Gets Acquainted With College Life During The Cable Premiere of "Tommy Lee Goes To College" Premiering at 10PM*

NEW YORK, Aug. 4 -- Gene Simmons invades England to teach a bunch of prim and proper boarding school students how to rock in the new VH1 series, "Gene Simmons' Rock School," premiering Friday, August 19 at 11PM.* The infamous "Demon" of KISS faces a monumental task: turning a group of classical music mini-scholars into a killer rock band. Following the premiere, each episode will air Friday nights at 10:30 PM.*

"Gene Simmons' Rock School" has Master Simmons setting up court at one of the UK's top independent boarding schools, Christ's Hospital in the small town of Horsham, south of London. The children who attend the 450-year-old school wear Tudor-style uniforms, march into the lunch hall accompanied by a full brass band and know nothing about rock music. So, in just six weeks Gene must transform a class of classically trained 13 and 14-year-old musicians into little rock gods.

Some kids will make the cut, and some will have their hearts broken as Gene picks a band worthy of opening for metal legends Motorhead in front of 5,000 screaming fans.

And the classroom fun doesn't stop there, VH1 is airing the cable premiere of "Tommy Lee Goes To College" on Friday, August 19 at 10PM.* Tommy Lee, a 42 year-old, twice divorced, father of two and founding member of the rock group, Motley Crue took time out of his busy schedule to go back to school and face the trials and tribulations of collegiate life. The series debuts on NBC on Tuesday, August 16 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
