AXS TV is ramping up to deliver an exciting new reality series featuring renowned American singer-songwriter Eddie Money and his family called “Real Money.” The 10-episode show will give viewers an up-close-and-personal look at Money and his wife, Laurie, their five kids and their big brood of beloved family pets. Production is currently underway.
Eddie and Laurie Money also serve as “Real Money” executive producers along with Enchanted Media and Victoria Levy, MJ Schirmer, and Shelley Storm as executive producers, in collaboration with executive producers Dina LaPolt, Steve Longo, and in association with Red Arrow Industries, executive producers Danny Downing and Ryan Hardison. Living life in the spotlight undoubtedly has its pros and cons and Money’s kids all dabble in the family music business in some fashion. Laurie Money runs the ship and helps keep things sailing smoothly.
The Moneys’ son Dez plays guitar in his dad’s band and writes and produces his own material. Son Julian plays drums, daughter Jesse is a blues-infused singer who often performs with her dad, Joe leans toward dance music and the eldest Money child, Zach, helps run the business when the rest of the family is touring.
The Money family patriarch is a world-renowned rocker whose career has spanned more than 40 years. He rose to fame in the ‘70s and ‘80s music heyday. His 1977 self-titled debut album featured one of his most popular tracks “Two Tickets to Paradise.” His fourth studio album featured two more of Money’s notable hits, “Shakin’” and “Think I’m in Love.”
How can you keep a 30-year marriage going strong and keep five kids on track toward their dreams? “Real Money” looks at the Money family’s tight bond and the unique balancing act that’s long been the secret of their success. Eddie Money is giving his fans some in-depth insight into the Money family’s daily lives and fans shouldn’t expect anything ordinary; but, they will likely witness an obvious display of love.
"We may not be the typical cookie-cutter family, but we have a strong sense of love and loyalty for each other that really shines through.” Money explained in a press statement. “It’s real, and it’s something I think everyone can relate to. We’re excited to share our lives with America, as they join us on this wild ride. I've only got two tickets to paradise, but I'm taking everybody!”
AXS TV is well-known for its in-depth profiles of some of classic rock’s biggest superstars. Original series like “The Big Interview with Dan Rather” and “Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar” really dig deep into artists’ lives and give fans a new perspective about some of their favorite musicians. The Red Rocker hits the road in the latter series and hooks up with his famous music peers in a variety of laid-back settings and locales, and even showcases some rare performances between him and his famous friends.
“Real Money” will likely follow this “Rock & Roll” intimate kind of format as it follows the hectic-yet-heartwarming antics of the Money family’s daily life. A "Real Money" premiere date is TBD. Stay tuned to AXS for ongoing series coverage and updates.
