RETURNS WITH TEN NEW EPISODES
NEW EPISODES RETURN TO A&E ON
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 5 AT 9 PM ET/PT WITH A
SPECIAL ONE-HOUR EPISODE OF THE AWARD WINNING SERIES
Legendary rock god and multi-hyphenate Gene Simmons returns to A&E with brand new episodes of his hit award-winning unscripted series “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” premiering with a special one-hour episode on Sunday, December 5 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. The first episode captures a highly personal moment for Gene as he is forced to finally face his childhood demons and his mother’s tragic past when visiting the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.
Gene’s life is an open book, but the one thing he keeps close to the vest is his mother’s harsh survival as a Jewish girl in Europe during WWII. His mother and Anne Frank were approximately the same age when they went into concentration camps and seeing how Anne lived strikes an emotional chord with Gene. No one is more important to Gene than his mother, and it’s a raw and telling look at Gene’s family history and childhood that fans have never had access to before now.
Over the course of ten new episodes, fans will continue to get the behind the scenes access to the family’s many adventures and milestone moments that make them the most interesting and enduring family on television.
