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

SEASON SEVEN PREMIERES MONDAY, MAY 28 AT 9PM ET/PT WITH A SPECIAL ONE-HOUR EPISODE

New York, NY, May 2, 2012 - Legendary rock god and multi-hyphenate Gene Simmons returns with his unconventional family for an all-new season of A&E's hit series "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," premiering with a special one-hour episode on Monday, May 28 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Season seven, which continues the longest running celebrity family-based series on television, begins with a shocking moment for America's most traditional, non-traditional family. After going through their most tumultuous year of their 28-year history, Gene and Shannon finally tied the knot. However, that doesn't mean all their troubles have magically gone away.

In what promises to be the most explosive season ever, Shannon decides she wants to adopt a child, and the entire family battles over her decision. Gene, Nick and Sophie are against the adoption, and for the first time in her life, Sophie is at drastic odds with her mother. Meanwhile, Gene is trying to learn to be a better husband but is still battling with his rock-star ways as Nick is striving to emulate his father's good qualities, yet finding it hard to avoid the bad ones. From the family's adoption battle, to Gene and Shannon's honeymoon in Africa (where Shannon has an ulterior motive planned), to Gene on tour for the first time as a married man, fans will have an all-access pass as America's favorite rock family unfolds personal layers of their lives that they have yet to reveal.

Last season "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" celebrated its most watched season ever, averaging 1.8 million total viewers per premiere episode with Gene and Shannon's engagement and wedding episodes representing the #1 and #2 telecasts ever for the series.

"Gene Simmons Family Jewels" is produced by Thinkfactory Media and the Gene Simmons Company. Adam Freeman, Adam Reed, Gene Simmons, Erin Kelly, Moriah Muse and Leslie Greif are the series executive producers. David McKillop, Neil A. Cohen and Steven Harris are the A&E executive producers.
