MSN Presents the Ultimate in Online Rock ’n’ Roll: “Rock Star: Supernova” Premieres July 5 Only on MSN
MSN today announced the premiere of online programming for “Rock Star: Supernova,” the new season of the hit reality series returning to CBS in a special 90-minute broadcast on Wednesday, July 5 at 8 p.m. EDT/PDT. Before its broadcast premiere, “Rock Star: Supernova” — produced by Mark Burnett Productions and seen last season by more than 6 million TV viewers each week — will premiere only on MSN® the morning of July 3, available on demand at the official series Web site (http://rockstar.msn.com).
For the first time, weekly behind-the-scenes episodes containing all original footage will be streamed exclusively on the Web on MSN. Just as in season one, four types of content will be available each week: extensive and immersive behind-the-scenes unscripted drama (produced exclusively for MSN); one performance show and one results show (both produced exclusively for CBS); and extensive original wireless content. The MSN behind-the-scenes unscripted drama will allow viewers to learn what it takes for the contestants to choose their songs and prepare for their weekly performances, and to follow the characters as they develop and grow under enormous pressure. It will be available at http://rockstar.msn.com, enabling on-demand viewing via streaming. In addition, a sneak peek at the trailer, video interviews with Supernova, the rockers’ bios and much more as part of the MSN-exclusive online content will be available on the site.
The second season of “Rock Star” features an all-star lineup of rock musicians who have joined forces to form a new supergroup called Supernova. Drummer Tommy Lee of Motley Crüe, former Metallica guitarist Jason Newsted and former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke will be casting for a lead singer from a pool of 15 contestants selected in auditions across the U.S. Continue At Source
