Former Blink-182 Guitarist Tom DeLonge To Bring His Paranormal Truther Career To TV With New TBS Series

first_imgFormer Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge is really going all-in on his relatively new career as a paranormal truther. DeLonge has focused more on non-musical ventures since parting ways with his former band back in 2015, which ironically included releasing new solo material in addition to co-writing and releasing a handful of novels under the banner of Strange Times. Now, it appears that DeLong’s expertise in extraterrestrial life and paranormal activity is strong enough that cable network channel TBS is bringing his ideas to the small screen with a new TV series which already has the green light to begin development.The forthcoming series has yet to receive an official title, but it the pilot is being written and executive produced by Aaron Karo, with Tom DeLonge, Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, and Russell Binder also joining the project as executive producers. “This is a dream I’ve had for over 10 years and it’s finally a reality,” DeLonge mentioned with the show’s announcement on Monday. “All the stories and themes I work on are meant to be shared through multiple mediums and on different platforms — film, TV, books, music and so on.”DeLonge also went on to explain how he hopes the new series will help establish more opportunities and maybe even a potential Marvel-esque entertainment franchise for his steadily growing sci-fi empire, which began as a website called “Strange Times”. The cast of characters found within the “Strange Times” book series are actually inspired by some of the “degenerate skateboarders” who DeLonge grew up with. It was that same skateboarding scene which ultimately helped a young Tom find his way into the punk-rock music world, and eventually lead to him join up with Blink 182 bassist Mark Hoppus. DeLonge also sounded hopeful that punk and new wave bands including New Order, Depeche Mode, the Queers, Bad Religion, and The Cure would join in on the fun with inclusion into the network show’s soundtrack.“I don’t like working on one-offs,” Tom DeLonge continued. “One reason I created ‘To The Stars‘ was to be able to build dynamic and rich worlds for everyone — whether you’re visual and prefer graphic novels and film or an avid reader who likes to pore over every detail and imagine the world on your own.”Blink-182, on the other hand, just wrapped up their 2018 Las Vegas “Kings of the Weekend residency at the Palms’ Pearl Concert Theater back on November 17th. In other Blink-182 news, Twitter recently melted down over differing opinions of how to pronounce the band’s name.[H/T Variety]last_img read more
