The Osbournes are getting ready to freak you out. Fifteen years after the first family of metal left the airwaves, Ozzy, Sharon and Jack Osbourne return on Aug. 2 in a new Travel Channel show called The Osbournes Want to Believe. The eight-part paranormal series will find Jack trying to make believers out of his parents, who are, of course, natural skeptics.
According to a description of the show, each hour-long episode will find Jack screening clips of unexplainable events, from Bigfoot and UFO sightings to poltergeists, creepy dolls and other unexplainable phenomenon to his folks. “My parents have always lived on the edge, even when it comes to believing in the supernatural,” Jack said in a statement. “I’m convinced they just haven’t seen enough evidence, so I’m making them watch the most undeniable footage caught on camera, including a few from my own personal experiences. My biggest challenge may be keeping their comments family friendly. It will be a classic Osbourne gathering!”
Ozzy and Sharon will check out Jack’s videos and critique them and the series premiere promises to include “their outrageously funny reactions,” including Sharon revealing her obsession with Harry & The Hendersons, “Ozzy’s historical digressions on Greeks, Romans and the berserkers and a copious amount of swearing.”
