Tune in from E! as The Wanted Lands are about to find a new home on the channel, and they are so excited that it's all they can do to refrain from serenading them with a chorus of "Glad You Came."
Yes, the UK pop group are headed to the States to star in their own E! series, The Wanted Life (working title), which will follow the five British/Irish heartthrobs as they live it up in Los Angeles and give fans total access into their superstar world.
So, with five rock stars living under one roof, what can we expect from the new show? Here are a few possibilities:
1. Max George and the Single Life
Max would be considered the ladies' man of the group to begin with, but since he recently broke up with his now ex-fiancée, you can bet that we'll be watching Max fending off female fans left and right. Will he find a special someone in America?
2. Girlfriend Drama
On the other end of the dating spectrum, bandmates Siva Kaneswaran and Tom Parker are in serious relationships with their respective girlfriends, Nareesha McCaffrey and Kelsey Hardwick. Can the boys maintain their relationships while living in a house with the band?
3. Party All the Time...
When you get five friends together, they're bound to have some fun nights out on the town. In the States, though, the odd man out might be Nathan Sykes, who is the youngest of the group at 19 and can't get into American bars and clubs!
4. ...But Also Time to Work
Nano Tissera will help manage the band while they're in LA. That might prove to be a tough task, especially with a wild card like Jay McGuinness in the band, who is described as having a "Jekyll and Hyde personality."
5. "Music, Bromance and Superstardom"
E! president Suzanne Kolb describes the show as full of "music, bromance and superstardom." Executive Producer Ryan Seacrest promises that the series is "bound to include irresistible pop tracks along with plenty of humor, antics and drama behind-the-scenes." It has the Seacrest stamp of approval; what else do you need?
Fans in the U.S. can tune in to the premiere of The Wanted Life (working title) this June, with the international premiere coming this fall.
