The Wanted lands reality series on E!

Boy band import The Wanted is bringing the rock and roll lifestyle to E! in a new reality series.

The Wanted

The cable network has picked up the tentatively titled "The Wanted Life" series, scheduled to debut in the fall. Produced by former "E! News" host Ryan Seacrest, the series will follow the band as they live together in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills and prepare for a US and Europe tour in support of their upcoming third album.

"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. 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," said E! president Suzanne Kolb of the U.K. boy band in a statement.

The band has already made an impression stateside, having performed on Fox's "American Idol" and gaining increased notoriety with their hit 2012 single "Glad You Came."

Seacrest added, "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. 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."
