The British-Irish fivesome will live together in an L.A. mansion for the E! series, premiering in June.
The Wanted has dominated headlines in the past year — largely thanks to the band’s feud with One Direction, and for its incredibly glamorous groupie, Lindsay Lohan — but now the boys will be telling their own story on a new reality show! Tentatively titled The Wanted Life, the E! series will show “the unvarnished, non glossy, real life look behind the scenes” of the five crooners.
The Wanted: Reality Show In Hollywood
“We’re moving into Hollywood into a big house … for a certain period of time [and] doing a bit of filming,” Max George told Ryan Seacrest during the Feb. 6 installment of On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “[I] feel so sorry for [the neighbors]. Apologies now! … We’re doing a show for E! and all really excited about it.”
Sounds like the guys’ show is going to get crazy!
The Wanted’s Rise To Fame In The U.S.
Officially formed in 2009, the British-Irish fivesome — Max, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Siva Kaneswaran and Jay McGuiness — released its self-titled debut album in Oct. 2010, landing on the UK top twenty chart with three separate singles: “All Time Low,” “Heart Vacancy,” and “Lose My Mind”
The group’s sophomore album, Battleground, was released in Nov. 2011, and proved to be an even bigger success! Along with the disc’s biggest hit, “Glad You Came,” three other tracks managed to land on the UK’s top twenty chart: “Gold Forever,” “Lightning” and “Warzone.”
After dominating Europe, the boys set their sights on U.S. audiences in 2012, and we ate them up like hotcakes. Their single “Glad You Came” reached No. 3 on the Billboard charts and sold more than three million copies. The second single, “Chasing The Sun,” also achieved success.
