After making stars of singer-actors like Hannah Montana's Miley Cyrus, Disney Channel has set its sights on a trio of young hyphenates, greenlighting a series, movie and concert special starring recording act The Jonas Brothers.
The teenage siblings -- Kevin, Joe and Nick -- are set to star in a live-action spy comedy titled J.O.N.A.S. that has just been given a series pickup, targeted to go into production early next year for a 2008 premiere.
The single-camera comedy, from Turtle Rock Prods. and executive producers Michael Curtis and Roger Schulman, stars the brothers as young operatives for the government -- aka Junior Operatives Networking as Spies (J.O.N.A.S.) -- who thwart evil while working undercover as a superstar teen rock band. The number of episodes has yet to be determined for the series, the pilot of which was ordered in May (HR 5/9).
Meanwhile, Disney Channel also has officially greenlighted Camp Rock after having been in the works for a few months. The music-filled original movie, which is in production in Toronto, stars the Jonases as members of a leading musical group, Connect 3, who are celebrity guest counselors at a prestigious summer camp for aspiring musicians. Camp Rock is directed by Matthew Diamond from a script by Julie Brown, Paul Brown, Regina Hicks and Karen Gist. »
