Pop music royalty, passionate philanthropist, and super mom, Cyndi Lauper is definitely more than just a girl who wants to have fun. With a successful career that has spanned over three decades, Cyndi is opening up her unavoidably chaotic, often comical, and truly multi-faceted life in the new original series Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual.
Each 30-minute episode gives viewers an all-access pass into the personal and professional life of one of pop culture’s most beloved and influential icons as she juggles her many roles, including rock star, mother, wife, Broadway composer, New York Times best-selling author, and philanthropist. Her family life, with her husband of 20 years, actor David Thornton (My Sister’s Keeper, The Notebook), and the couple’s 14-year-old son, Declyn, plays a role throughout the series as Cyndi struggles with the same issues all working mothers deal with: splitting time between work and family, and giving adequate attention to both. Her life may be a far cry from what most consider "normal," however her attempt to manage her madness is surprisingly relatable.
This season viewers will be along for one bumpy and entertaining ride as Cyndi launches the Broadway musical "Kinky Boots" with Harvey Fierstein; performs on NBC’s hit series The Voice (after having problems with her voice); struggles to make a deadline on her epic autobiography; serves as Grand Marshall of the Pegasus Parade at the Kentucky Derby (where she drops a certain four-letter word on live television, much to the chagrin of her son); works tirelessly for her True Colors charitable foundation, and much more. While she may be constantly running to keep up, Cyndi's true colors always shine through equally, be it at a glamorous photo shoot or while playing paintball with her son...
