"The Aviators" is one of PBS' most-watched television reality series. Producers announced they signed Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil to host a new reality series based on his adventures as a newly-certified pilot.
"Vince Neil Escapes" will feature Vince and his girlfriend, his semi-famous rocker manager, and his soft-spoken female mentor and flight instructor, as they take off on flights across North America and the Caribbean. Throughout the season, Vince battles FAA regulations to earn the right to fly on his own because of his long history of DUI convictions.
Vince Neil said: "I'm thrilled to be part of the series. It's a great ride. We do a lot of crazy partying in our travels, for sure, but what I've learned from this experience goes way past that. Flying has always been a huge dream for me, but the reality of learning something this disciplined has had a life-altering effect. It's taken time for it to sink in, but I've definitely gone through some unexpected changes."
