IFC Celebrates Season Two of Z Rock With ”America’s Hottest Rocker Mom” Contest

5 Finalists Will Compete in a Live Event in New York City with Celebrity Judges Sebastian Bach & Z Rock Stars

New York, New York – April 15, 2009 – IFC announced today a search for "America’s Hottest Rocker Mom," celebrating Season 2 of its uncensored, uncut, hit comedy Z Rock. Perfectly melding the series’ dual "kids band by day/hard core rockers by night" storyline, the band will set out via nationwide submissions to find America’s rocking-est mom. Five finalists will descend on Manhattan’s Flatiron District in June for a live, no-holds (or leather-, or big hair)-barred finals event. Hard core rockers Sebastian Bach and, (others here) will join the Z Rock boys as judge and jury.

Rocker moms can enter to win a trip to NYC, a $5,000 grand prize, and claim to the title "America’s Hottest Rocker Mom." The search begins today, April 15th at IFC.com. Online applications require one or more photos, favorite rock song, favorite rock band, best rock concert moment, biggest rocker crush, and a statement explaining why the contestant should be chosen as America’s hottest rocker mom. Visitors to IFC.com will be able to view and rate the contest entries from "Frosty" to "Super-Hot."

Sebastian Bach, (names of other rocker judges) and the Z Rock boys Paulie, David and Joey will choose 4 finalists – the fifth will come from site visitor ratings – to come to New York City and vie for the title.

Once in New York, contests will participate in a live competition, and be judged on performances in the following categories:

  • Attire: Best Rocker Outfit
  • Knowledge: Rocker Trivia
  • Lyrics: Rock Karaoke Contest
  • Dance: Show Off Your Best Moves

The IFC original series Z ROCK is returning uncensored, uncut and commercial free in June 2009 for a second season of ten hilarious episodes. The hit comedy series loosely based on the real lives of its three New York based stars-brothers Paulie Z and David Z, and longtime friend Joey Cassata who make up the actual rock band ZO2 by night, as well as The Z Brothers, a kids party band by day.

Season 2 will continue its satirical look at the trials and triumphs of the rock n’ roll dream, giving viewers a back-stage pass into the band’s struggles to become rock stars, which are often interrupted by the sobering realities of everyday life.
