In “Mystery Girl,” The Naked Brothers Band is making a major motion picture! But it’s far from quiet on the set as Nat grapples with why his girlfriend Rosalina is sabotaging herself in the film with terrible acting in the hopes of getting written out of the script. To Nat’s dismay, he discovers that Rosalina is about to leave on a six-month cruise around the world – her prize for winning a music competition. Meanwhile on the set, Alex freaks out when he discovers that his part in the movie calls for him to kiss his skateboarding buddy, Juanita! David, Thomas and Qaasim plot to overthrow the movie’s bullying director and Nat discovers he’s starting to have feelings for his new co-star, actress Miranda Cosgrove who plays herself.
The brothers will also hit the open road this fall for their very first music tour titled “Nat & Alex Wolff: Fully Clothed & On Tour” kicking off at the world famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ on Saturday, Nov. 1.

About the show:
Inspired by the Wolff siblings’ real-life, preschool-born band, The Naked Brothers Band follows a world-famous rock group, chronicling their fame, friendship, temporary break-up and adolescent experiences.
The cameras track the charismatic rock stars led by dreamy, sensitive singer-songwriter Nat, 13, and energetic, unabashedly adorable drummer Alex, 10, on and off stage, focusing, too, on their celebrity lifestyle with all of its perks and problems.
Featured as well are the Wolff boys’ real-life friends and band mates from pre-school days: cellist Thomas (Thomas Batuello) and keyboard player David (David Levi), along with guitarist Qaasim (Qaasim Middleton) and bassist --Nat’s crush-- Rosalina (Allie DiMeco). Cooper (Cooper Pillot), the band’s pint-sized manager, completes the tween troop, and Jesse (Jesse Draper) is Nat and Alex’s ditzy tutor/babysitter and real-life cousin.
The Naked Brothers Band movie received a nomination for a 2007 Teen Choice Award. Additionally, Nat Wolff, Alex Wolff, and Michael Wolff are all recipients of the BMI 2007 Cable Award.
