Two members of the Osbourne family are back on TV in an “non-scripted” father-and-son series, Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour, where they go on travel adventures together.
The brand-new travel series takes rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and his son, Jack, to historic sites around the United States and the United Kingdom, including the Alamo, where in 1982 the Black Sabbath rocker famously relieved himself on the Alamo Cenotaph and received a lifetime ban from the city of San Antonio, Texas.
The ban was lifted in 1992 when Osbourne donated $10,000 to Daughters of the Republic of Texas, the group that maintains and manages the Alamo.
At one point, the duo travels to Roswell, New Mexico on the hunt to spot some UFOs, which Jack is interested in, according to Ozzy.
“Jack’s into UFOs. I’m into it to a certain degree so we went to where the crash was supposed to have happened, and it’s in the middle of f**kin’ nowhere. I said, ‘Let’s just pull off the f**kin’ road’ and they said no; Jack had to go to the exact f**kin’ spot, as if there’s anything there, y’know?” Ozzy told Billboard.
During the course of the hour-long episodes, they visit other places like Mount Rushmore, Stonehenge, the Jamestown Settlement and Sun Studios.
Reality TV star Jack Osbourne launched a production company, Osbourne Media, and co-produces with Jenny Daly’s T Group Productions, creating unscripted formats and observational documentaries.
Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour is produced for History by T-Group Productions with Osbourne Media.
The 10-episode series premiered on July 24 and airs every Sunday at 10 p.m. on History.
The Prince of Darkness and his son have not starred in a regularly scheduled TV series since MTV’s reality show The Osbournes, which also featured family members Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, which ran for four seasons and ended in 2005.
Ozzy Osbourne resumed a year-long farewell tour with Black Sabbath last month, which includes Sabbath and Slipknot headlining a combined festival — called Ozzfest Meet Knotfest — this September in San Bernardino, Calif.
