NBC has announced a premiere date for "Tommy Lee Goes to College." The show will premiere on Tuesday, August 9 at 9:30-10 p.m. ET. The University of Nebraska at Lincoln (UNL) welcomes a motley new student to its campus, notorious rocker Tommy Lee. At 19, Lee formed "Motley Crue," sending him on a meteoric rise to fame and fortune. Who had time for college when Lee was busy touring the world and living the fast life for two glorious decades?
Cut to Tommy Lee today — twice divorced and a single father of two boys. Most men in their midlife crisis buy sports cars and date young women. Lee wants something different, something money can’t buy, he wants academic redemption. So he heads off to UNL, but it won’t be class as usual when the new student is Tommy Lee. Each of the six half-hour episodes will find Lee floundering in a new fish-out-of-water situation, quintessential collegiate challenges such as finding his roommate Matt, trying out for the marching band and cramming for finals in true Tommy Lee fashion with his hot tutor, Natalie, in tow.
The series is from executive producers Eddie October ("Bands Reunited"), BT (composer "Monster"), Richard Bishop and Brad Wyman ("Monster"). "Tommy Lee Goes to College" is distributed by NBC Universal Television Distribution. The series is co-executive-produced by Mike Nichols ("Dismissed"). Tommy Lee and Carl Stubner are producers. October directs the series.
