Fans will recall that a comedy Elton had planned for U.S. television, based partly on his entourage, did not pan out.
However, a real-life version will air on VH1 next month.
The Fabulous Life Presents: Insane Celebrity Entourages will look at the lives of artists such as Elton, Joss Stone, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake and Eminem.
The hour-long show examines the way stars depend on aides; bodyguards; a ''glam squad'' (to look good); personal chefs and trainers; spiritual advisors, pet sitters, and even jewelry handlers.
Since schedules may change, viewers are urged to double check their listings.
So far, though, the air dates include Monday, November 13 at 11 a.m. and 9 p.m.; the following day at 6 p.m.; Wednesday the 15th at 11 p.m.; Thursday at 2 p.m., and 4:30 p.,. on Sunday, November 19.
All times are Eastern.
