Ever dream of running into Jon Bon Jovi while strolling through a small-town supermarket? Dreams like these will become reality television on TWC-Dimension’s new series “If I Wasn’t a Rock Star.”

The series will follow rockers as they return to their hometowns sans armies of agents and publicists, forcing them to consider how their lives would differ out of the spotlight.

Bon Jovi himself will serve as executive producer on the series, along with Bob Weinstein and Patrick Reardon of TWC-Dimension.

“I was drawn to this project simply because it will be a celebration of the working men and women of this country. They are the real rock stars,” Bon Jovi said in a statement.

Prototype’s Frank Rainone and Teresa Sorkin will develop the series for Prototype, with 3 Ball Entertainment’s Todd A. Nelson and Brant Pinvidic also exec producing.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be teaming up with Jon Bon Jovi and the teams at Prototype and 3 Ball to bring ‘If I Wasn’t a Rock Star’ to audiences,” Weinstein said in a statement. “The series will offer music fans a chance to see their favorite stars as they’ve never imagined them before. We can’t wait to see what other amazing talent comes on board.”

Bon Jovi fans will have to keep livin’ on a prayer until the series sets an air date.

    Sounds great. But will it be shown in Australia? Please say yes!

  2. Amy says:

    Maybe if Jon does it, he can see just how hard it is for the ‘working men and women’ to afford the ridiculously expensive tickets to his shows.
