This is either going to be totally awesome, or completely horrendous. Rancid‘s Tim Armstrong has just announced his own new web series musical called “Tim Timebomb’s RockNRoll Theater.” Its creation marks the first scripted original programming featured on VEVO and appears to be a punk rock version of Glee meets Rocky Horror Picture Show starring well-known frontmen of punk bands. Here’s what Tim had to say about it:
“Doing a show centered on musical theatre isn’t really a stretch for me. For 25 years I’ve been making music and collaborating with friends, been involved in hundreds of videos, and it’s really just a direct extension of my world.” He adds, “VEVO is the perfect partner to premiere the show because their platform is extensive and will bring lots of eyeballs to our show.”
“Dante,” the pilot episode scheduled to air Oct. 21, stars AFI frontman Davey Havok, guitarist and vocalist Lars Frederiksen of Rancid, and actor Robert David Hall who is known for his extensive work on CSI. Check out the trailer for it here.
