Steel Panther To Take Over Your TV?

Rumor has it that Comedy Central has ordered up a pilot of a reality show documenting the career of Steel Panther.  THIS should be good! 

From Blabbermouth.net:

“A loosely scripted docu-reality show which follows the members of the outrageous and popular ’80s-style “hair” band STEEL PANTHER as they attempt to bring back heavy metal is one of the pilots that were ordered by Comedy Central as part of the network’s next year of production. Tentatively titled “Steel Panther”, the show is created by Brian Posehn (“The Sarah Silverman Program”) and Jeff Tremaine (“Jackass”).

Featuring vocalist Michael Starr (real name Ralph Saenz; ex-L.A. GUNS), drummer Stix Zadinia, bassist Lexxi Foxxx, and guitarist Satchel (real name Russ Parrish; ex-FIGHT), STEEL PANTHER (formerly known as METAL SKOOL) is a parody heavy metal band from Los Angeles, known for its profane and humorous lyrics. The group’s over-the-top live performances have attracted celebrities and fans alike, and in February 2009 the band succeeded in becoming one of the most popular cover bands in California, winning the contest of “Best Tribute Band in the Universe”.” The band’s first album, entitled “Feel the Steel”, was released in 2009.

“The focus throughout our development process is to find performers, writers, directors and producers that project a strong, unique comedic voice, and then help them actualize their vision in the most unfiltered manner possible,” said Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production, Comedy Central. “With the current development slate, I think it’s safe to say we’re doing our part to end global hunger and foster world peace.””
