NBC has a special holiday treat in store for fans of One Direction. The popular boy band will headline their first U.S. network special with One Direction: The TV Special airing on December 23, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT. The one hour show will feature musical performances by Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson filmed in Orlando and in South America.
“We’re really proud of our first TV Special. We had a great time filming the different parts both in Orlando and on the road in South America. We can’t wait for our fans to see it” – One Direction.
Here’s the details on the special, courtesy of NBC:
One Direction’s first U.S. network special will offer a rare inside look at the wildly popular band through a combination of documentary material, comical stunts and musical performances. The special features exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the South American leg of their 2014 Where We Are Tour and follows the band as they recorded their new #1 album, Four, on the road. Viewers will also experience One Direction’s music as they stage a special intimate concert for lucky fans at Universal Orlando Resort, where the band performs a selection of songs from Four as well as some of the biggest hits off their three previous albums. The hour-long telecast also finds the boys giving unsuspecting fans the shock of their lives by introducing themselves in disguise at the theme parks, as well as the bandmates interviewing each other aboard a high-speed roller coaster.
