The Wanted Set For E! Reality Show
The Wanted are coming to TV. E! has announced that the boy band will star in an upcoming docuseries tentatively titled “The Wanted Life.” Ryan Seacrest is among the producers.
The show will follow the five singers — Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuinness, Tom Parker, and Nathan Sykes — as they live together in the Hollywood Hills and go about recording their third album and preparing to tour. It’s set to premiere in June.
“The rock star lifestyle is something that everyone has fantasized about and The Wanted are giving viewers total access into their world as they live out this dream,” said E! president Suzanne Kolb in a statement. She continued, “This series is a perfect blend of music, bromance and superstardom chronicling the lives of one of music’s biggest groups as they continue to make their mark on the global stage.”
Seacrest said, “America has a long history of falling for British bad boy musicians, so it’s no surprise that The Wanted are already beloved by legions of fans far and wide.” He added, “This talented and outspoken English-Irish band are setting their own course to fame and this journey is the foundation of the series. It’s a road that’s bound to include irresistible pop tracks along with plenty of humor, antics and drama behind-the-scenes, which I believe will further ignite fascination and even obsession with these guys.”
