Shannon Tweed-Simmons (pictured, second from right) and her daughter Sophie (far left), the stars of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, are to be the focus of an upcoming series for W Network in Canada from Force Four Entertainment.
The 8 x 30-minute reality series will begin shooting in December, primarily in LA, Vancouver and Whistler, and will air in 2014.
The as-yet-untitled series will see the mother-daughter duo running into celebrities during their social and business events, with regular appearances from Gene Simmons.
It will also aim to capture the relationship between Shannon, a former actor and model, and her daughter, a straight-A student who runs a children’s charity in Vancouver.
“They’re a true dynamic duo – outgoing, savvy, enterprising and smart as hell,” said Force Four Entertainment’s executive producer John Ritchie. “Their legions of fans will be highly entertained as they rock into the next exciting chapter in their lives.”
“There is so much to love about this new series – from their mother–daughter dynamic to the unusual and highly entertaining big personalities in the world they live in,” added Vibika Bianchi, VP of original programming for women’s and family networks at Corus Entertainment. “We’re excited to see Shannon and Sophie open up their lives to W’s audience.”
