Henry Rollins, James Iha, Bethany Cosentino Contribute to New Kids Show
Published May 11, 2015Hannah Montana producer and writer Andrew Green plans to add a little edge to the world of children's television with his new show A History of Radness, which will feature a small army of punk and indie musicians.
Amazon has just ordered a pilot for the half-hour sitcom and, as The Wrap reports, it'll be heavy on the guest spots. The show's inaugural episode will feature original music written by the Thermals' Hutch Harris, along with a score from former Smashing Pumpkins axe-man James Iha.
In addition, Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino will narrate, while Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds will be involved in some capacity as well.
Most exciting of all, however, is news that Henry Rollins will guest as Coach Carlucci. As anyone who's seen Jack Frost can attest, playing a coach in a teen comedy might be Rollins' truest calling of them all.
The show reportedly follows a pair of siblings who aren't exactly the coolest kids at their middle school. They decide to rectify that by starting a band.
