Travis Barker could be known by you from his solo projects or Blink-182. Or talking about what happened recently, you may have probably seen him with his girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, in the spotlight.
Now, it appears that the rock star is working on a new reality TV series known as Inked & Iced. Barker partnered with Bullish Content, according to DEADLINE. Bullish Content has been handled by former Kinetic Content and This Is Just a Test Media, Executive Paul Lima. This company is behind the TLC reality series “I Am Jazz” and he reached out to them to develop his show.
What Will Inked & Iced Be About?
The Inked & Iced series will follow Barker’s new business venture with Dr. Tom Connelly, the Diamond Dentist also features musicians and celebrities undergoing dental implants of high-end diamond, while receiving tattoos all over their body and with them being under anesthesia.
Lima developed the series and she also struck an overall production deal with Aengus James, where he previously worked at This Is Just a Test Media.
Aengus James ‘ other development credits are Discovery’s Man vs. Bear and TLC’s Little Spouse on The Prairie.
James said Inked and Iced is about the expression of oneself, the human body as a canvas of art, eccentricity, entrepreneurship, and capitalism. He gave credit to Travis for being a genius.
Lima agreed that the series is a kind of out-of-the-box programming that is developed by Paul tremendously.
She further said that they’re all happy to be working with Travis and their innovative business of his as it launches and grows later on.
The series looks like the drummer fell in love with the idea just when he got his pearly whites in January, blinged out. That’s an $8,000 upgrade, all thanks to the veneer imprinted with a diamond skull and made by Dr. Thomas Connelly, the overall head of diamond dentistry.
Travis Barker didn’t stop there. He told Thomas Connelly that he wants to do something different and he loves the look of it. What he meant by that, only time will tell.
Also, it should be noted that he received a barbed wire tattoo on his knee while the procedure was being carried out. He shared a picture on Instagram and captioned it as Multitasking at the dentist. Later on, he shared a picture of the new tattoo done on him, which is the “new ink”.
Travis Barker is not a stranger when it comes to reality TV. He starred in Meet the Barkers, an MTV show that ran for two seasons and he is expected to be in the upcoming Hulu series, done by the Kardashians.
The series is still in its early development stage and no premiere date has been fixed and announced yet.
Travis Barker, also a musician, has been pretty busy these days on his musical side.
He signed former BMG artist, Avril Lavigne to DTA Records in November 2021, and also with her new release Love Sux was dropped on the 25th of February. Also, he’s working on another solo album that will feature several guest artists on vocals.
