Disney Channel has announced it has ordered Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream, a new reality series that will offer viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the Jonas Brothers band. It is scheduled to premiere later this spring.
"The Jonas Brothers are an unstoppable force that has exploded onto the music scene," said Disney Channel executive Gary Marsh. "We are thrilled they have allowed us this unprecedented access to document their journey to superstardom."
Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream will follow the band's members -- 20-year-old Kevin, 18-year-old Joe and 15-year-old Nick -- in their daily life with their parents and brother Frankie, touching upon everything from rehearsals and performing on stage to what they do during down time.
The Jonas Brothers recently completed a sold-out tour as special guests on the Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds concert. With Disney's camera crew in tow, they returned to the road in January with their own sold-out concert tour.
The band's self-titled sophomore album dropped last August and made its debut at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 album sales chart and has since gone platinum.
In addition to the new reality series, the Jonas Brothers will star in Camp Rock -- a music-filled Disney Channel original movie scheduled to debut this summer. They are also scheduled to begin production on a live-action series for Disney Channel.
