Disney Channel orders Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream reality series

The Disney Channel has ordered a reality series starring its stars the Jonas Brothers, the pop group that will also appear in upcoming fictional projects for the network.

Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream “will follow the on- and off-stage lives of the platinum-selling trio — Kevin, Joe and Nick — on their current Look Me in the Eyes tour,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cameras will film them “as they rehearse, travel on the tour bus and perform. It also will follow them as they interact with their parents and younger brother, go sky diving and race go-carts,” the paper says.

The new show “is set to premiere in the spring in shortform segments.”
