By Tim Molloy
Pop band The Wanted, known for hits including "Glad You Came," will star in a Ryan Seacrest-produced reality show for E!, the network announced Wednesday.
In a not-at-all stagey setup, the band will live together in the Hollywood Hills as they record their third album, plan for a new U.S. and European tour, and maybe, just maybe, juggle friendships and relationships with their musical careers. Produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, SB Productions and Global TV UK, the new half-hour series premieres in the U.S. in June and around the world this fall.

"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. "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."
"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," said Seacrest. "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."
