A&E Network has announced it's ordered Lachey's Bar, a new docu-reality series following brothers Nick Lachey and Drew Lachey as they open a bar in their hometown of Cincinnati, OH.
Lachey's Bar, which is tentatively-titled and currently in production, is slated to premiere next year. A&E has picked up 10 half-hour episodes of the series.
Nick and Drew are making their lifelong dream of opening a bar together a reality. Although they lack business experience, the brothers are determined to learn the ins and outs of running a bar.
According to the network, Nick and his wife Vanessa Minnillo split their time between Los Angeles and New York, while Drew recently returned to Ohio. The bar gives Nick a reason to consider planting his family's roots in Cincinnati, where he'd live right next door to Drew in a neighborhood full of childhood friends.
Nick starred in the reality television series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica with his then-wife, Jessica Simpson, in Summer 2003. In December 2009, he began hosting The Sing-Off. After competing on NBC's competition series Stars Earn Stripes in 2012, he later hosted The Winner Is in 2013.
Drew won the second season of Dancing with the Stars with partner Cheryl Burke in early 2006. He returned to Dancing with the Stars for its fifteenth season as one of the all-star contestants, however, he was the third couple eliminated from the competition with pro partner Anna Trebunskaya.
Lachey's Bar is being produced by Leftfield Pictures and executive produced by Brent Montgomery, David George, Jordana Hochman, Will Nothacker, Jason Hollis, Drew Tappon, Shelly Tatro, Dave Mace, and Sean Gottlieb. Nick and Drew are also serving as executive producers.
