Tommy Lee To Star In Reality TV Show


May 15, 2008

A new reality TV show will see Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee team up with rapper Ludacris to build homes out of sustainable construction bamboo.

The TV show, ‘Battleground Earth’ will see the artists build small houses out of construction “kits”.

As Jeffree Trudeau, President of Bamboo Technologies, the company behind the project says, “Our buildings range in size from a 120 sq ft tropical bungalow, like those assembled on Battleground Earth, to an over 3000 sq ft, fully insulated, 2 story Bamboo Mansion. The smaller kits assemble in a matter of days, and in the case of Tommy Lee and Ludacris, in a matter of hours, making them particularly attractive for disaster relief.”

These will be the first homes on the US mainland ever to be built out of the structure.

“These structures are the first of their kind to be built on the US Mainland and result from decades of testing non-toxic, sustainable treatments to get Structural Bamboo internationally certified for permitted residential and commercial buildings,” explains Trudeau.

Tommy Lee has proven himself to be a bit of a reality TV junkie, also starring in ‘Tommy Lee Goes To College’ and ‘Rock Star: Supernova’.

Ludacris has made appearances in ‘Access Styles’ and non-reality shows ‘Crash’, ‘Law & Order SVU’ and ‘Hustle and Flow’.

“Battleground Earth: Ludacris vs. Tommy Lee.” debuts August 3rd on Discovery Communication’s new channel “Planet Green” (which itself launches on June 4).
