Totally Boyband


Totally Boyband

"Totally Boyband" was a television programme that aired in the United Kingdom on MTV. The programme debuted on September 18, 2006 and aired on Sunday nights at 21:30 (GMT).

The premise centred around the former members of boy bands and pop music bands attempting to regain their former fame by regrouping into a new band called Upper Street. A single called "The One" was released on October 23, 2006, but spent only one week at #35 after entering the UK Singles Chart on October 29.

The participants were:
* Dane Bowers of Another Level
* Jimmy Constable of 911
* Lee Latchford-Evans of Steps
* Bradley McIntosh of S Club
* Danny Wood of New Kids on the Block

The single was later recorded without the help of Latchford-Evans, who was sacked by the rest of the band before their debut release due to a disagreement. He described the bands manager in the program, Jonathan Shalit as "two-faced". [ [http://www.mtv.co.uk/channel/mtvuk/news/09102006/lee_bring_on_the_steps_comeback] . MTV.co.uk, 2006]

It was announced in October, 2006 that US music network VH1 would be producing its own version of the show, titled "Man Band" with Bryan Abrams (Color Me Badd), Rich Cronin (LFO), Chris Kirkpatrick (*NSYNC) and Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees).
