Jonas Brother Partners With Ryan Seacrest for E! Reality Show
The oldest Jonas Brother, Kevin, and his wife Danielle have teamed up with executive producer Ryan Seacrest for a new reality series on E! "Married to Jonas" will follow the New Jersey-based suburban life of the newly-married couple. The show, which premieres Aug. 19 at 10 p.m., will also catalog Kevin's journey as he and his brothers, Nick and Joe, start to record new music.
"I vividly recall believing from the very first time that I met them that the Jonas Brothers would, without a doubt, become a worldwide cultural sensation," said Seacrest in a statement to EW.com. "When we learned that Dani married Kevin, our production team became curious about what life would be like for a young bride entering the excitement, and sometimes chaos, of a pop star's life. Looking through the lens of young love, the show will examine the ups and downs of Dani and Kevin's marriage, against the backdrop of their contrasting family cultures, traditions and individual careers."
The 24-year-old popstar married Danielle (formerly Deleasa) in December 2009. The Jonas Brothers' last studio release, 2009's "Lines, Vines and Trying Times," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 247,000 copies in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan. Both Nick and Joe have launched solo careers since the group's unofficial hiatus, while Kevin took time to enjoy married life. All three brothers are currently based in the New York area, with Nick starring as J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."
The Jonas' parents, Kevin Sr. and Denise, and their little brother Frankie will presumably also appear in episodes of the show. The trio's last television endeavor -- "Jonas L.A." -- aired on the Disney channel, and followed the lives of a fictional family that mirrored their own.
