Jonas Bros show gets major changes

Disney is twisting its moustache right now, salivating over the thought of churning out another guaranteed television hit. The latest main ingredient in its recipe for printing money is musical act the Jonas Brothers, the puffy-coiffed trio from New Jersey that has teen girls swooning.

After several big tours and a strong showing in the Disney movie Camp Rock, the boys were set to take the obvious next step and star in their own series. In fact, details on the project were already released--the Jonas Brothers would be playing government-hired spies in a show called J.O.N.A.S. (Junior Operatives Networking as Spies).

For you Jonas fans out there who thought that was a stupid idea, today is your lucky day. Apparently the folks at Disney have scrapped the secret-agent idea in favor of something more...HBO.

E! Online reports that the boys made a guest appearance on KIIS-FM's morning show with Ryan Seacrest earlier this week, and gave some scoop. Apparently, the program will now have more of a Flight of the Conchords feel. HBO's Flight of the Conchords, about a pair of New Zealand transplants trying to make it in New York City, mixes situation comedy with amusing musical numbers.

"We can just pick up a guitar and break into song--in really funny situations," said one of the trio.

The untitled Jonas Brothers show is scheduled to go into production this September. Disney has not announced anything official on the program.

Personally, I'd have gone for the spy idea. But I think those boys are drop dead gorgeous, particularly Joe, so what they do with their show doesn't matter to me.

It doesn't matter what the show is like, who writes it, or what it's about. It'll be ridiculously popular no matter what. Most of the viewers will be watching it because of the JBs anyways. Though this sounds like a big step up from the J.O.N.A.S show they were originally coming out with.

no matter how you guys groan on about it the thing is.. it really doesn't matter. if the jonas brothers are in it it's gonna be a huge hit. I'm not saying this isn't humiliating for the population of the world.. it's just the truth of the matter so stop freaking out.

It will be just like Flight of the Conchords, only it will be unfunny, poorly acted, and unwatchable. Only morons would watch this. Needless to say, it will be a huge hit.

Well, whatever the plot is, I'm sure all those teenage girls will be watching it. Guaranteed hit.

What is it with all these people Disney keeps throwing at us? I can't say I've ever heard a Jonas Bros. song but I don't really want to after watching the awful HSM!

Who the hell are they? I've never heard of them... Disney sucks. The last show that Disney did that I actually liked was Gargoyles. Why can't they make intelligent programming for kids anymore? Slide in that knowledge without the kids knowing? I learned a lot about Shakespeare from Gargoyles. I even took an english class in college about the show!

I liked the old JB show premise. Dont see why they changed it.

FOTC is a fantastic show/group. Disney will never be able to replicate anything as original, talented or humurous - especially with JB. They suck

I can't wait to see the Jo-Bros in all their goodness. I gotta say, a year ago I dispised them and then one of my friends begged me to give them a chance, so I listened to their first CD and now it's on the top of my playlist. The fact that they write their own music is amazing... Nick's Joy To The World (A Christmas Prayer) from when he was a kid on broadway is incredible!

I smell another group Disney wants to cash in on. *cough* Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana *cough*

At least the show seems less outlandish. But still, the Jonas Brothers shouldn't have a show. They just can't act.

Don't worry Jonas will eventually die out. Remember Hanson? They had much more talent then these jokers and they died out around 2000. The Jonas are annoying as much as Hannah Montana. I can't wait for the end of this no talent Disney hacks era. It'll come one day I say!

I love JB and all but Disney's using them. They don't need a Camp Rock or TV show. They should just stick to music!

Sorry Jonas Bros., but you'll never replace the Flight of the Conchords. Their comedy is original.

So unoriginal.
