Tommy Stinson — bassist for The Replacements and frontman of Bash & Pop — has a few credits on IMDB (some Guns N' Roses concert films, a documentary about The Replacements and a cameo in American Hardcore), but he may have another one coming down the line.

In an interview with Creative Loafing Tampa, the 50-year-old rock icon said that he definitely has a television show in the works.

We're waiting on a few more details from publicity, but Stinson — who opens for Psychedelic Furs in Clearwater, Florida this weekend — seems to be pretty stoked on the whole thing.

"I got about three of four things on the burners at any one time these days and it’s partially trying to look for the next inspiration but it’s also partially because I like doing lots of different things," he said about staying busy. "It’s definitely inspiring that you’ve done so much over the years. Wait until you see my TV show that I’m producing!"

Really, a TV show?

"It is definitely a thing," he added.
