Ozzy and Jack Osbourne are Making a Show for… The History Channel
The Osbournes may have failed to get their eponymous reality show back on the air… but that won’t stop them from coming back to television.
In a new interview with Billboard, The Ozzman revealeth:
“Jack and I are doing a thing for the History Channel, like a father and son spoof on history. We went to Stonehenge and met a guy who thinks he’s the fucking reincarnation of King Arthur. And we went to Bletchley Park to see the machine [Alan Turing] used to break the [German] kind. We’re going to Mount Rushmore, to the abandoned silos where America used to have their Minutemen missiles and all that. It’s educational for me, actually — history with an Osbourne slant.”
Which is a cute idea. Fifteen years ago, I totally would have watched this. Will it be any good? Who the fuck knows. But if it inspires even one kid to take an interest in history, it will have been worth doing, right? That’s what I tell myself whenever I remember the movie Pearl Harbor. I dunno if it’s true or not.
No word on what this thing will be called or when it will air, but we will certainly share those details when they’re announced, assuming nothing more interesting is happening that day.
