Ozzy & Jack’s World De­tour

Jack and his dad Ozzy are vis­it­ing NASA on their road­trip show.

Sea­son 1 His­tory (*186) 20:30 Re­al­ity Rock­star Ozzy Os­bourne and his son Jack are tak­ing a merry tour of may­hem in their new show Ozzy & Jack’s World De­tour (2016-cur­rent). “It’s been crazy,” says 30-year-old Jack, who made his first TV ap­pear­ance in re­al­ity show The Os­bournes (2002-2005) with his fam­ily. “But it’s been a good laugh. We went gold pan­ning and then they wanted us to film more and my dad was like, ‘Oi, I’m busy pan­ning for gold!’”

The Bri­tish fa­ther and son hit the road across the UK and US dur­ing their 10-episode trek to learn more about their his­tory and where the Os­bournes come from, while also stop­ping off at his­tor­i­cal sites like the Alamo… which had 67-year-old Ozzy a lit­tle wor­ried. He was banned from the Texas war memo­rial after drunk­enly uri­nat­ing on it while wear­ing a flo­ral dress in 1982 and Jack ex­plains that “we warned the pro­duc­ers – when you go to the Alamo, ev­ery­thing’s go­ing to hap­pen! And it did… it was like a riot. Thirty years ago, peo­ple wanted to kill my dad. Now they’re there be­cause they love him!”

And while mak­ing the show has been a bond­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for Jack and Ozzy, it’s been an ab­so­lute blast for Ozzy, lit­er­ally. “I was born in 1948 and as kids we’d play in bomb­sites. I’ve al­ways been in­ter­ested in war and stuff like that,” says Ozzy. Which is why he had fun fir­ing a tank can­non in episode 3 (15 Novem­ber) – “It was like a big fire­cracker. Like a deep con­cus­sion!” It’s not just war toys that the pair are in­ter­ested in ei­ther – they heard a ru­mour that their an­ces­tors were among the first Bri­tish colo­nial set­tlers in the US and they wanted to know more, with ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Jack adding that “we’ve just had a lot of fun, just my dad and me… and mil­lions watch­ing at home!”
