A couple of months ago we discussed the cancellation of “That Metal Show” by VH1 Classic which you can refresh your memory on HERE. Earlier today Trunk announced the filming of a new interview series called “Inside Out With Eddie Trunk” and it will be filmed at the Iridium Jazz Club and feature the legendary Ace Frehley as his first guest. Check out the poster below and then a statement culled from Trunk’s own website.
I announced today I am shooting a pilot for a new TV series I have long wanted to do I am calling “Inside Out with Eddie Trunk”. I have always wanted to do a long form interview show with an audience for TV and I’m excited to be working with Iridium and some great producers to shoot the pilot this Tuesday night in NYC. We are going to have a small studio audience of around 100-150 people at Iridium for the taping. You must RSVP and get a confirm from the venue to attend. RSVP@theiridium.com is the address. They are handling audience and it is first come first served even if you do get a confirm and we reach capacity. So line up early to assure yourself a spot. Admission is free however it is a $25 per person table minimum. I’d like to thank my old friend Ace Frehley for being my first guest. Ace and I go way back as many of you know. I expect the interview to last 75-90 minutes and we will cover his entire life. Some of the audience will also get the chance to ask questions to Ace. For those that don’t know what a pilot is it is essentially a demo in TV. So I have no idea yet if, when, and where this will air and if it will become a series. I have confidence it very well could and have a great team I am working with.
Hope to see you Tuesday night if you can get in and are in the area. Also please note this has NOTHING to do with That Metal Show. I am still 100% committed to wanting to keep that show alive on a new home and we are actively looking to do so. But I am also going to work on and explore new additional stuff as well. So keep an eye on this space and my social media for more and I am so psyched to be shooting this! We will see where it goes. Thanks for the support!
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I love The Iridium and have seen a handful of shows at the venue already such as Zakk Wylde who did one of those “Les Paul Mondays” and think this is the perfect space to do a one on one interview sort of show. I’m not sure I’m going to be present for this fun and interesting event but if you are one of the lucky 100 that make it, you are in for a treat since Ace Frehley is always a blast to listen to. Eddie knows this musician quite well so I am expecting the line of inquiry to be on point for it. We wish Eddie the best of luck in this new program. This will be the perfect countdown to Ace’s new album “Origins V.1” which is coming soon. I discussed the first single “White Room” on THIS REVIEW.
