Comedy Central has officially ordered up a pilot for a Steel Panther TV Show. Tentatively titled "Steel Panther," the program is a "loosely scripted" "docu-reality show" that follows the band members as they attempt to bring back heavy metal. A pilot of the show was ordered by Comedy Central for their 2010-2011 development slate.

The show is being created by heavy metal comedian Brian Posehn and Jackass director Jeff Tremaine.

Steel Panther have among their ranks ex-L.A. Guns and Fight members, and released their debut album, "Feel the Steel," last year.

Yeah, maybe bring back hair metal... I don't think regular metal needs their help, although I like them and will check the show out to see if it's worthwhile.

I always knew they were a joke but a "metal band" doing a comedy central show is pretty low.

GOddamn people come on. What network besides comedy central would even consider a show like this? What the f*** is wrong with cc anyhow? i personally think this could be funny. Steel panther is perfectly well aware that they arent actually bringing metal back; its satire for christs sake.

80s hair metal was a joke, so a show about Steel Panther should be hilarious. Even the name, "Steel Panther", is so ridiculous I laugh just thinking about it.
