The Producers Of "The Aviators" Present "Vince Neil Escapes," Reality Series Featuring Motley Crue Frontman's Rockin' Flight Adventures

OSHKOSH, Wis., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FourPoints Television, producers of " The Aviators," one of PBS' most-watched television reality docuseries, is proud to announce it has signed Vince Neil, lead singer of the infamous rock band Motley Crue, to head-up a new reality series based on his exploits as a newly-certified pilot.  The series, "Vince Neil Escapes," will follow Neil in his dream to finalize his pilot's license, for which flight training occurred on-camera during Season three of the popular PBS aviation program.  In the process Vince and an entourage head for the skies in a series of flights to glamorous party destinations.

Episodes will accompany Neil and his bombshell entrepreneur girlfriend, his semi-famous rocker manager, and his soft-spoken female mentor and flight instructor, as they embark on various whirlwind flights across North America and the Caribbean, enjoying rock-star level treatment along the way.  Throughout the season, Vince battles FAA regulations to earn the right to fly on his own (due to a long history of DUI convictions, including one fatal collision), working with a quirky medical practitioner... and accordion player. 

Yet Neil's more enduring challenge is to strike a balance between his hard-partying nature and the unique sobriety and focus required to fulfill his dream of being a full-fledged pilot.  Neil's flight instructor and "angel on the shoulder" warns that the only variable between Vince enjoying a casual flight and dying in a fiery disaster is Vince himself.

"We get to see a developing side of Vince that lifts the series above the typical celebrity reality fare," said Anthony Nalli, producer and creator of Vince Neil Escapes as well as a long-time pilot and host of The Aviators.  "He's faced with some choices that could have life-and-death consequences, and is called upon to summon a serious side that many 'Vince-haters' doubt even exists.  It's a classic battle of temptation that we all face—only on an Rock Star scale."

"I'm thrilled to be part of the series. It's a great ride," said Neil. "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."
