“Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour” Premieres July 24 on HISTORY, featuring the Osbournes’ father-and-son adventures in the Revolutionary City

Colonial Williamsburg fans and metalheads alike can tune into the series premiere of “Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour,” on Sunday, July 24 at 10 p.m. eastern on HISTORY. The series follows rock legend and “history nerd” Ozzy Osbourne and his son Jack as they visit the world’s most unique historical attractions, including the Revolutionary City.

Show production passed through Virginia’s Historic Triangle in March, when the pair visited Colonial Williamsburg’s new educational Musket Range, Historic Trades shops and other Historic Area attractions.

“We’re thrilled to have Ozzy and Jack experience the fun and engagement of Colonial Williamsburg, and to share it with their legions of fans on HISTORY,” said Colonial Williamsburg President and CEO Mitchell B. Reiss. “The series captures their shared passion for history, and we’re confident it will inspire new audiences with the compelling, entertaining stories we tell here every day.”

The series’ first and second trailer videos tease the “Prince of Darkness” and his son boarding a humble camper to bond over visits to varied sites including England’s Stonehenge, the Crazy Horse Memorial in South Dakota’s Black Hills and Philadelphia’s Eastern State Penitentiary.

HISTORY is available to local Cox Communications customers on Channel 59 and in high definition on channel 1059, for DirecTV customers on channel 269, and for Dish customers on channel 120.
