Announcing the new series, Suzanne Kolb, President, E!, stated: “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.”
“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,” added Ryan Seacrest, Executive Producer. “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.”

At 24, Max George is the ladies’ man of the group and holds nothing back. He nearly signed a deal to play football with Preston North End in Manchester before joining the group. Following a very public break-up with his ex-fiancée, Max is playing the field… and loving it.
Siva Kaneswaran, also 24, is the most serious and Zen-like member of the band although he is constantly working to keep the peace between his girlfriend and his band mates. He also feels the guys live too wildly, and tries to calm down their activities whenever possible.
Funny but elusive, Jay McGuinness can be the most secretive of the group, and at 22, possesses a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality. He is arguably the group’s biggest supporter but can be completely unpredictable.
Tom Parker, also 24, is a bit of a skeptic and has strong opinions on where the band should be headed, which often gets him into hot water with his band mates. He’s got a girlfriend who fits right in with the guys but the relationship can be challenged by all the time Tom spends with the group. Tom has an energetic temperament that often leaves a mess in its wake.
Nineteen-year-old Nathan Sykes is the baby of the group but has proven to be one of the most mature and grounded. He is completely devoted to the fans and feels the group has an image to uphold. Although he’s close with each of his band mates, he is sometimes left out of the mix when they go out since he’s not old enough to get into bars and clubs in the US.
