Jonas Brothers

Los Angeles (E! Online) - The Jonas Brothers are keeping it real for the Disney Channel.

The musical siblings have signed on to star in a reality series for the family-friendly network, currently known by the working title Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream.

The series will follow the brothers—Kevin, 20, Joe, 18, and Nick, 15—on their current Look Me in the Eyes tour, with cameras capturing both their on- and offstage antics.

Fans will get a glimpse into the pop stars' tour-bus travels, their rehearsals and their family interactions, as well as their adventures in such pursuits as skydiving and go-cart racing.

The series is slated to premiere this spring.

"The Jonas Brothers are an unstoppable force that has exploded onto the music scenes," Disney Entertainment President Gary Marsh said in a statement. "We are thrilled they have allowed us this unprecedented access to document their journey to superstardom."

The Jonases, who have a huge following among the teen and tween girl set, released their eponymous sophomore album on the Disney-owned Hollywood Records label in August.

The album proved to be a hit and was certified platinum in February, no doubt getting a boost from the brothers' appearance on Miley Cyrus' sellout Best of Both Worlds tour.

Living the Dream won't be the first small-screen collaboration between Disney and the Jonases. The network previously greenlighted a scripted series, J.O.N.A.S., and a TV movie, Camp Rock, featuring the brothers.

No production date has been set for the scripted series, but Camp Rock is slated to air in June.

Up ahead, the brothers are due to hit the road again for their summer Burning Up tour, which kicks off July 4 in Toronto. They will also be part of the lineup at KIIS-FM's 2008 Wango Tango concert, taking place at Los Angeles' Verizon Amphitheater  on May 10.
