The Osbournes are once again inviting the cameras into their tumultuous lives. This time, they'll appear on Fox,
and they've got a new schtick.
Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly will headline a variety show - produced by FremantleMedia North America (the folks who bring you American Idol) - that will include a mix of performances, stunts and competitions.
Fox alternative programming chief Mike Darnell told Variety the Osbournes' show - currently with the working title The Osbournes: Loud and Dangerous - is likely to launch as a Christmas special, and that he sees the show as a potential throwback to Donny and Marie's variety show from the 1970s (Osbournes? Osmonds? That's a stretch, dude, but we'll go with it).
Sharon, by the way, is still under contract as a judge on NBC's America's Got Talent. Fox will tape episodes of the new show around her AGT schedule. - J.R. Whalen
