Best Bets Albums 2013, The Wanted
The boys of the Wanted have confirmed that they'll star in a new reality series, set to invade U.S. televisions via the E! network beginning in June. Produced by Ryan Seacrest, the show is going by the working title "The Wanted Life" and will focus on the British boy band living together in Los Angeles.
The show announcement prompted the following Twitter post from Seacrest:

After scoring a Top 5 hit with "Glad You Came" last year, the Wanted have been working hard on their proper U.S. debut album, which they told Billboard will hopefully be out in April. The vocal group also hopes to release two albums during the 2013 calendar, just like fellow U.K. boy band One Direction did in 2013.
Along with the upcoming Wanted reality show, the E! network also is home to "Chasing The Saturdays," a reality series documenting the British girl group the Saturdays.
