More reality TV: Jonas Bros. get their own show

The Disney Channel has greenlighted a reality series centering on the pop-rock band the Jonas Brothers.

The series, which is shooting under the working title ‘‘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.

‘‘Dream’’ will get up close and personal with the brothers 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 series is set to premiere in the spring in shortform segments.

Disney executives are high on the Jonas Brothers. In fact, the network greenlighted a scripted series and original movie starring the brothers last year. Their self-titled sophomore album was released in August by Disney-owned Hollywood Records, and they have been featured in concert specials on Disney Channel.

‘‘The Jonas Brothers are an unstoppable force that has exploded onto the music scene,’’ said Gary Marsh, president of entertainment at Disney Channel Worldwide.

The Jonases have a huge following among tween and teen girls. After releasing two albums, they joined Miley Cyrus on her sold-out Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds concert tour that kicked off in October and ended in January.
