The Jonas Brothers will begin shooting their new Disney Channel series on September 29, Access Hollywood has exclusively learned.
The series will be called “JONAS,” a source close to the show revealed to Access.
“They play three brothers in a band. But in the show, they are the ‘Lucas’ brothers and ‘JONAS’ refers to the name of the street they live on,” the source added.
The show, starring Joe, Nick and Kevin Jonas, will be a single-camera comedy series.
The boys’ real-life parents will remain behind the scenes for the new show, with actors playing their TV mom and dad. In addition, real-life little brother Frankie (often called “The Bonus Jonas” by fans) will make recurring guest appearances as the youngest Lucas brother.
But while shooting will begin later this month, fans will have to wait until Spring 2009 for the series debut, the source said.
During a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest, oldest brother Joe said the show would have a feeling similar to HBO’s musical skein “Flight of the Conchords.”
“It’s going to be a funny show and it’s going to be a great cast,” Joe said. “I’m really excited.”
