The tween pop group will star in their own reality show on the Disney Channel, to air this spring.
This spring, tween girls will have something new to get them through the last few months of school – a new reality show about teen pop-rock trio the Jonas Brothers. The Disney Channel has greenlighted the series, which is now in production under the working title, Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream and which will follow the on- and off-stage lives of the tween/teen music stars.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the best-selling trio – brothers Kevin (age 20), Nick (age 18) and Joe (age 16) – will be filmed during their “Look Me in the Eyes” tour and will feature footage of them rehearsing, performing, having fun and interacting with their parents and younger brother.
If that weren’t enough, the Disney Channel has also given the go for a scripted series and an original TV movie, starring the brothers. The scripted series has not yet been given a production date, but is described as a live-action spy comedy entitled J.O.N.A.S. The movie, Camp Rock, will feature various rock, pop and hip-hop performances in a June summer release.
The Jonas Brothers released their first album, It’s About Time, in August of 2006. Now, with their sophomore self-titled album having gone platinum and hit Billboard’s Top 5, the Brothers’ third CD is set to be released by Hollywood Records on July 8 of this year.
