Music veteran Patrick J. Armstrong signed Billy Baldwin for “Rock the Yacht,” a new reality TV series he is developing on the music and marine industries.

The series will seek to "shed a positive light on one of America’s last industrial sectors while giving audiences a behind-the-scenes perspective on the rehabbing of luxury yachts,” according to a statement.

The series will profile numerous companies known for their work and performance throughout the marine industry.

“I love the open ocean and the sense of adventure, discovery and exploration I feel every time I leave a port to cruise down to the islands,” said Armstrong, a longtime boater. “It’s an addictive feeling to leave everything behind you and discover a place for the first time. The Caribbean is filled with spots that you can only really appreciate by boat, and I’ve been lucky enough to discover a few of those for myself.”

The program is in the process of filming the pilot, and the tentative launch in the third quarter of 2014. Click here for more about Armstrong and “Rock the Yacht,” including some of the companies featured.
