MUMBAI: AETN International reaches Cannes for Mipcom with over 300 hours of new programming, featuring real-life series from the A&E Network and documentary series and specials from The History Channel.

The new real-life family series Gene Simmons Family Jewels (13 x ½ hr) follows Kiss. Mom is Shannon Tweed -- former Playmate of the Year, actress and model. And their kids, Nick and Sophie, are, well...surprisingly charming, well-behaved teenagers dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, even though Mom and Dad are like no one else’s parents. Gene and Shannon have been happily UNmarried for 23 years and have no plans of getting married any time soon. Gene is a rock star, and a multi-media magnate. He is also the kind of dad who brings Gatorade to his daughter's soccer games and stands in the front row of his son's rock band when they play gigs.

Gene Simmons Family Jewels reveals the side of Gene that he has kept hidden until now, and shows how the most non-traditional, traditional family in America manages to make it work under the oddest of circumstances. Produced by The Greif Company/A Day With, Inc and the Gene Simmons Company for A&E Network, informs an official release.

A high-speed real-life series, Driving Force (14 x ½ hr) stars racing legend John Force and his three drag racing daughters. John Force is the most accomplished and dominant figure in the sport of drag racing, a form of auto racing, with 119 career victories and an unprecedented 14 team championships in 16 years. The hook of the show: John is the father of four beautiful daughters – 36-year old Adria who has managed the finances for John Force Racing corporate headquarters since she was 20, and 23-year old Ashley, 19-year old Brittany and 17-year old Courtney, all of whom are following in their father’s tracks competing in the male-dominated field of high-speed drag racing. Racing is the backdrop for this true-life comedy that follows a father trying to bring his family together while also preparing for the next championship run. Driving Force is shot in HD. Produced by Schmaguuli, LLC for A&E Network.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead (two hours) follows the ancient scroll from its creation in around 1800 BC near the site of the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, to its re-discovery - and theft - in 1887, and the modern story its translation and resurrection.
