In a plot that sounds oddly familiar, A&E announced today that it had greenlighted a series that follows boy band members and brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, of 98 Degrees, as they open a bar in their hometown of Cincinatti, OH. Why mess with a formula that works? The show will premiere on A&E in 2015, and filming is already underway.
Both Nick and Drew are no strangers to reality TV. Nick was a pioneer in the celeb-reality genre, staring in MTV’s “Newlyweds” back in 2003. Drew was the champion of the second season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” and returned for their all-star season in 2012.
We’ll definitely be tuning in.

We will only watch reality shows that star current or former boy band members, and this series certainly fits the bill. The show follows the adventures of the Wahlberg family business, Wahlburgers, run by brothers Donnie, Mark and Paul. And we can’t forget the original entourage – the real Johnny Drama and Nacho.
Watch the trailer for season 2 below!
Donnie is one of our favorite boy banders, and we love his wisecracks. And did you ever hear of the time he saved Marky Mark from two guys that jumped him in a bar? Surely you’ve heard the Michael Jackson jacket story. We can’t wait to see more of the Wahlberg family adventures, and hopefully some more cameos from the rest of the New Kids!
Tune into A&E at 10:00PM to watch the premiere!
