4th Street Media acquired literary and all-media rights to the autobiographical tell-all “Sex, Drugs And Cherry Pie” by actress, model, and glam rock icon Bobbie Brown. An early 2013 release is expected.
Before “American Idol”, there was “Star Search”. Before there were sex tapes, there were sexy videos. And before there was Pamela Anderson, there was Bobbie Brown.
“Sex, Drugs And Cherry Pie” is the outrageous true story of a Louisiana beauty queen who became an L.A. Goddess, and the dozens of celebrity encounters, rock stars, and tumultuous affairs that followed — Tommy Lee, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner, Slash, Dave Navarro, and more.
In 1987, America tuned in each week to hear Ed McMahon announce Bobbie Brown as their choice as “Spokesmodel Champion.” She soon landed on the Sunset Strip, and the dream girl seemed to be on her way to a dream life, taking Hollywood by storm as the ultimate video vixen in WARRANT‘s infamous “Cherry Pie” video. Her future seemed as bright as her smile, but the world of privilege and adoration was filled with demons, drugs, and a downward spiral of self-destruction.
In “Sex, Drugs And Cherry Pie”, Bobbie takes us on a journey of debauchery, excess, fame, and hair products; detailing how touring the world with music royalty can sometimes lead down a rocky road towards redemption.
Brown recently completed filming a new reality series called “Ex-Wives Rock”, which “chronicles the highs and lows of the glamorous L.A. lives of four women who have led the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll life… and have survived to reinvent themselves.”
The show, which will premiere on August 29 on the Canadian network Slice, is co-produced by the former FEMME FATALE frontwoman Lorraine Lewis, and is brought by the Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based distribution company Tricon Films Television.
“Ex-Wives Rock” follows video vixen Susan Dixon (ex-wife of WARRANT bassist Jerry Dixon); Brown (ex-wife of WARRANT frontman Jani Lane); drummer and Tommy Lee‘s sister, Athena Lee (ex-wife of SCORPIONS drummer James Kottak); and Sharise Neil (ex-wife of MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil). Throughout each episode, you will see all sides of the four ex-wives: the good, the bad and the ugly. We’ll witness family drama, messed up love lives and friendships crash and burn. We’ll see the glamorous red carpet events, the seedy rock clubs, the fabulous hotel lunches and the quiet dinners at home.
Being “hair-band groupies” is far in the past for these now late-thirties, early-forties ladies; but that doesn’t mean their rock ‘n’ roll days are over. Their journey begins where one life has ended and another one has just begun. They are mothers. Business owners. Partiers. And ladies of the L.A. lifestyle.
