GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS RETURNS TO A&E FOR AN ALL-NEW SEASON

SEASON TWO OF THE HIT REAL LIFE SERIES PREMIERES SUNDAY, MARCH 25 AT 9 PM ET/PT

New York, NY, March 9, 2007 � Legendary KISS rock star Gene Simmons and his unconventional family are back and better than ever for an all-new season of the hit real life series Gene Simmons Family Jewels, premiering with back-to-back episodes on A&E Sunday, March 25th at 9:00 PM ET/PT. With its trademark warts and all style, the series promises to shock and entertain viewers as Gene and Shannon Tweed make television history with the broadcast of their dual facelift operations!

Talk about reality TV. For the first time ever, a celebrity couple allows cameras inside the operating room. Viewers will have an uncensored look at their plastic surgeries from pre-op to post-op, including the couple�s long road to recovery. In addition to revealing their new faces, the new season will show whether Gene and Shannon can continue to be �Happily Unmarried� after more than 20 years together, Nick preparing to leave for college, Sophie fast becoming a young lady, and Shannon�s determination to have another baby � all while Gene is living the life of a Rock God.

From New York to Vegas, London to Paris and as far reaching as the tropical paradise of Turks & Caicos, follow the Simmons-Tweed clan as they set out to prove, yet again, why they are the most non-traditional, traditional family in America.

Leslie Greif, Adam Reed and Gene Simmons are the series executive producers and Adam Freeman is the series co-executive producer. Gene Simmons Family Jewels is produced by The Greif Company and the Gene Simmons Company. Robert Sharenow and Didi O�Hearn are the A&E Executive Producers.
