ROCK STAR: SUPERNOVA returns for its second edition with two weekly broadcasts, beginning with a special premiere on Wednesday, July 5 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), followed by another special broadcast on Thursday, July 6 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) before moving to its regularly scheduled Tuesday (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) and Wednesday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time periods the following week.
This year′s edition will feature an all-star line-up of rock musicians who will join forces to form the new rock super group, Supernova.
The winner will record an original CD with Supernova, to be co-written and produced by Butch Wagner (hit songwriter/producer for Avril Lavigne and Pink), that will be released in the fall before the band embarks on a world tour in early 2007.
ROCK STAR: SUPERNOVA is produced by Mark Burnett Productions. Mark Burnett, David Goffin, Lisa Hennessy, Dave Navarro, Tommy Lee and Carl Stubner are executive producers. Conrad Riggs and Eden Gaha are co-executive producers.
The new super group will use this summer′s ROCK STAR: SUPERNOVA as the competition to determine their new lead singer. Members of Supernova, featuring drummer Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Jason Newsted (Metallica) and Gilby Clarke (Guns N′ Roses) will take over couch duty with returning co-host Dave Navarro to judge the rock singers. Co-host Brooke Burke returns for stage introductions when the hopeful vocalists begin the quest to become Supernova′s new lead singer.
