Billy Corgan is entering the world of reality TV. Here’s a trailer.

Billy Corgan’s new project might be more personal than any Smashing Pumpkins albums yet released. Billy Corgan’s Adventures in Carnyland is an unscripted reality series that premieres today (May 14) on the CW.

The eight-episode series will follow Billy as he tries to restore the National Wrestling Alliance (a longtime pro wrestling company he owns and helps promote) to something approaching what it used to be before the WWE dominated everything. The show will also involve wrestling with the demands of the Pumpkins (“Pumpkinworld”), dealing with his two children, and planning a wedding to his partner Chloe.

Can Billy hold it all together? I guess we’ll have to tune in and find out.
