Pop sensations the Jonas Brothers are coming soon to a small screen near you: the musical trio has announced that they will star in their own TV show.
Brothers Joe, Nick and Kevin appeared on Ryan Seacrest's radio show recently, and told him that they'll appear in a sitcom in the style of Flight of the Conchords - the critically acclaimed comedy about New Zealand folk singers Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, and their attempts to make it big in New York City.
The series will air on the Disney Channel, home to other mega-successful series including High School Musical and Hannah Montana, which stars the Brothers' fellow musician Miley Cyrus.
"[The TV series is] actually gonna happen," the Brothers told Seacrest. "September - in like seven weeks from whatever today is - we start production."
In Flight of the Conchords, McKenzie and Clement frequently break into songs that mirror what is happening in their lives - presumably, the Jonas Brothers' series would follow the same formula.
Earlier in 2008 the Jonas Brothers announced they would star in a spy-themed series titled J.O.N.A.S. (which stood for Junior Operatives Networking As Spies). That premise has now been scrapped. http://www.yourtv.com.au/news/index.cfm?i=140757
