Former *NSYNC-er Lance Bass mentioned to New York last night that he’s producing an amazing-sounding new boy-band reality competition show. Bass explained the concept, which he’s pitched to VH1, saying:
“It’s a really great music show, starring all your favorite boy bands. It’s going to be really fun. I got a member from Backstreet Boys, A.J. McLean. A member from *NSYNC, Joey Fatone. A member from New Kids on the Block, Joe McIntyre. And a member from New Edition, Bobby Brown. They’re all going to form a boy band, each, from the most talented guys in America that I’ve scouted, and then they’ll go head-to-head in a competition to see who the best band is, so it’s bragging rights for the guy in the group, for sure.”
Bass said later that Brown wasn’t totally confirmed for the show, but he’s working on that. “I think Bobby will do it,” he said.
UPDATE: VH1 could not confirm the show at this time, but a rep for the network explained “VH1 is talking to Lance Bass as well as a lot of other big names in the music and pop culture arenas about a lot of great ideas for new series.”
