Richie Sambora Developing TV Drama Series

(Classic Rock) Former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is to be executive producer on a drama series based on his own experiences. He was originally approached by HBO to work on a soundtrack for a show in development - but instead, he presented a script he'd written three years ago about the "toil, trials and tribulations" of a rising-star band trying to make it big.

The network decided to run with his concept, which he created after repeatedly being asked to write a tell-all memoir. Sambora tells ABC Radio: "I don't want to do that cliched thing about who slept with who, what substance happened here, what was going on there.

"I'm a Jersey guy, so I keep everything to the chest - I don't want to talk about anybody anyway. Plus, I have a daughter. So I said, 'Why don't I write a teleplay?'" Read more here.
