Steel Panther TV show coming to Comedy Central

Steel Panther Eighties glam metal revivalists/homage payers Steel Panther have won the hearts of metal fans who grew up in that decade but have also faced a bit of flak from metalheads for being a bit too over the top in their delivery. Well, this ain't going to help - the band are going to be the focus of a new reality television show.

Tentatively titled Steel Panther, the program is a "loosely scripted" "docu-reality show” (which means it's about as real as The Osbournes was) that follows the band members as they attempt to bring back heavy metal. A pilot of the show was ordered by Comedy Central for their 2010-2011 development slate.

The show is being created by heavy metal funnyman Brian Posehn and Jackass director Jeff Tremaine; combine those credentials with the band's hysterical approach to what they do, and it does sound like a recipe for some laughs.
