Kiss Branding Continues With Upcoming Children's TV Series

(from AOL NoiseCreep)
After hearing about Paul Stanley's legendary '70s sexploits, reading Gene Simmons' revealing biography and watching 'Family Jewels,' we think Jason Vorhees and Freddy Kruger might be better role models for children than the members of Kiss. However, E1 Entertainment obviously felt otherwise and recently struck a production and development deal with the "hottest band in the land" for a comedic 30-minute television series for kids

"We're honored to be involved in carrying on the Kiss legacy," said Frank Saperstein, Senior VP of Kids and Animation for E1. "It's wonderful to collaborate with the creative forces behind one of the greatest rock bands of all time and unquestionably one of the most recognized worldwide."

The untitled series will be produced and distributed worldwide by E1. The executive producers are John Morayniss and Frank Saperstein for E1 Entertainment, alongside Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of Kiss. E1 and Kiss will handle all licensing and merchandise for the series."

Kiss continues to be the juggernaut of licensing and merchandising, from Kiss M&M's to Kiss Dr. Pepper," said Gene Simmons, "Kiss is a band, but also the only music 'brand.' Continuing in our 35-year history of going where no band has gone before, we are proud to partner with E1. Like all things Kiss, we intend to make this a very special show for our fans."
