It’s a rare occasion when hard rock fans and lovers of Colonial Williamsburg have reason to watch the same television show.

This Sunday at 10 p.m. metalheads and American history buffs alike will want to tune in to the History Channel for the series premiere of “Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour.”

According to a news release, the 10-episode, non-scripted series will follow Black Sabbath lead singer Ozzy Osbourne and his son, Jack, as they visit the world’s most unique historical attractions, including the Revolutionary City.

“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 [Channel],” Colonial Williamsburg President and CEO Mitchell B. Reiss said in the release. “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.”

Show production passed through the Historic Triangle in March, when the father and son duo visited the Colonial Williamsburg’s Musket Range and stopped by a dig at Historic Jamestowne, along with several other stops at local shops and attractions.

History Channel 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.
