Chevy Chase, MD, United States (4E) – Musician Bret Michaels has been tapped to host the Travel Channel’s newest series “Rock My RV” to be released in November 2013, the network announced Thursday.
The eight-episode show will feature Michaels and a team of skilled custom RV designers and fabricators in transforming ordinary RVs into extraordinary road abodes.
Andy Singer, General Manager of the Travel Channel, said, “For the past 25 years, Bret Michaels has spent at least nine months out of the year in a tour bus that he personally designs from top to bottom. We couldn’t think of a better front man than Bret for the series. He lives and breathes life on the road and undoubtedly holds the record for most hours logged in a custom coach. Bret jumped at the chance to share his passion for travel and the RV experience through this fascinating, obsessive world of customizing RVs. We wanted him, and he wanted to do this – it is a great partnership.”
Meanwhile, star Bret Michaels commented, “Between touring and travelling, I spend a lot of time on the road and my tricked-out, custom coach is my home away from home. I crisscross the country and live in my tour bus, and I know how to take an RV from ordinary to extraordinary. I can’t wait to put my expertise to use and show people how to make their RVs rock.”
Produced by BCII Productions for Travel Channel and executively produced by Bud Brutsman (BCI) and Patrick McManamee (Travel Channel), “Rock my RV” is set to begin production in November this year.
