Sure he’s busy with Black Sabbath and tentative plans for retirement, but Ozzy Osbourne has another project lined up this summer, a new History Channel show with his son Jack.
The lighthearted series will be titled Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour, and will explore history from an irreverent point of view.
“Jack and I are doing a thing for the History Channel – a father-and-son spoof on history,” Ozzy told Billboard. “We went to Stonehenge and met a guy who thinks he’s the f—ing reincarnation of King Arthur. We went to Bletchley Park to see the machine used to break [Nazi] code [used in World War II].”
The 10-part series, which premieres July 27, has been an illuminating experience for the Prince of Darkness.
“We’re going to Mount Rushmore, to the abandoned silos where America used to have their Minuteman missiles,” he said. “It’s educational for me, actually – history with an Osbourne slant.”
