Ozzy Osbourne has begun work on his next studio album , his wife/manager Sharon revealed during a recent interview. The new disc will follow up 2007's "Black Rain", which has sold more than 500,000 copies in the U.S. and was Osbourne's first all-new studio recording in six years. The Osbourne family is slated to return to television this fall in a new "reality variety" series on Fox tentatively titled "The Osbournes: Loud and Dangerous".

The new series will feature musical performances, comedy sketches, and game-show competitions.
