Tommy Lee Goes to College premieres on Tuesday, August 16, 2005 at 9P.M. ET on NBC. In the premiere episode, Tommy Lee embarks on a brand new adventure outside of his life as a rock star to enroll as a student at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Like any new student, Tommy faces the challenges of adapting to the college environment and completing challenging coursework.
Tommy moves into his dorm and gets to know his new roommate (Matt Ellis), and also meets his brilliant and hot new chemistry tutor (Natalie Riedmann). College life might turn out to be right up his alley.
As he settles into college life, Tommy Lee begins to feel the pressure of his challenging courses. The rock star takes a break from English, Chemistry, and Horticulture to return to his musical roots from back in high school by trying out for UNL’s marching band.
The straight-laced marching band is a far cry from the rock n’ roll lifestyle Tommy is used to, and he soon finds himself struggling to adapt. Back in the classroom, Tommy’s hot tutor (Natalie Riedmann) is having trouble keeping Tommy on task, and calls in a substitute tutor to lay down the law. Tommy must choose to buckle down and stay focused on school or give it all up for some relaxation and fun.
