Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis is getting his own life story made into a TV show. HBO has decided to turn his early life in Hollywood into a series. Hey, it worked for Mark Wahlberg and Entourage!
The idea was spawned by Anthony’s 2004 autobiography called Scar Tissue. Back in the day, Kiedis’ father was a drug dealer to the stars.
Kiedis says of his relationship with his dad Spider, "He introduced me to the arts, to a more culturally magnificent life. But some of it was this quite heavy, adult matter that I wasn’t capable of digesting."
One of those examples is having lost his virginity at the age of 12 to his father’s girlfriend. Talk about dysfunctional! Kiedis hopes the TV project will help him bond with his father. He tells Daily Variety, "I love mulling over all this raw material. Dad’s into it too. He sees it as our last great hurrah. For us to be reconnecting to construct these memories is exciting."
Kiedis is considering narrating the show, and may make regular cameo appearances. Were totally in! It sounds like a great premise for a show!
