A&E Network delves inside the lives of Tinseltown’s well-heeled
offspring with Sons Of Hollywood, a new halfhour original real-life
series. Set to premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, April
1 @ 10 PM ET, the 12-episode weekly series follows the daily lives of
three childhood friends as they attempt to conquer the entertainment
business by day and the Hollywood scene by night.
“A perfect addition to A&E’s signature real-life brand – Sons Of Hollywood offers an unflinching and compelling look at three childhood friends who face the typical triumphs and tragedies of young adulthood in an atypical world that is complicated not only by their location but by their lineage,” said Bob DeBitetto, Executive Vice President and General Manager, A&E Network.
Sons of Hollywood is a real-life series that tracks the daily lives of three scions of Hollywood: Randy Spelling, son of the prolific television producer, the late Aaron Spelling; Sean Stewart, son of music legend Rod Stewart; and rising talent manager David Weintraub. At first glance these friends are living the dream – they boast impressive pedigrees, inside connections and outrageous social lives. But scratch under the surface and all that glitters is not necessarily gold.
The series follows the trio as they attempt to step out from the imposing shadows of their parents and forge their own identities. Sons of Hollywood kicks off with the three friends moving out of their family mansions and in together for the summer. Viewers are given unprecedented access to the raw drama and moments of true comedy the trio experiences as they try to carve their paths in the world. The warts-and-all series exposes the intimate relationship dynamics between the sons and their famous fathers, reveals day-to-day drama with friends and family, unmasks career pressures, takes a look at a personal struggle with sobriety and witnesses the tragedy that befalls Randy Spelling when his father passes away in the midst of filming the show.
Sons of Hollywood is a production of iCandyTV. JT Taylor is executive producer and Brent Wilson is supervising producer. David Weintraub is a cocreator and producer. Randy Spelling and Sean Stewart also serve as producers on the series. Robert Sharenow and Michael Morrison are executive producers for A&E Network.
