New Jonas Brothers music, a new So-Cal setting and a new serialized comedy format mark Season Two of the Teen Choice Award-winning series "JONAS," newly named "JONAS L.A.," premiering SUNDAY, JUNE 20 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. It stars pop culture superstars Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas, Chelsea Staub and Nicole Anderson. The Jonas Brothers also star in the short-form series "Jonas Brothers Living the Dream 2," which gives viewers unprecedented access to their lives on stage and off during their European tour, and in the contemporary movie musical, "Camp Rock 2 The Final Jam," premiering Friday, September 3 on Disney Channel.

For its first season, "JONAS" was TV's #1 program among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14, and was cable's #1 program in Total Viewers (3.4 million) in its Sunday time period. For 2009, it was in cable's Top 10 programs among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14.

The "JONAS L.A." episodes showcase music performances and fuse clever comedy with an authentic portrayal of a band of brothers navigating new waters. Recurring guest stars include Debi Mazar, Adam Hicks, Abby Pivaronas and Beth Crosby and fan favorites Rob Feggans and Frankie Jonas.

For Season Two, the production has gone stage-less and is produced entirely on location around Los Angeles. New executive producers Lester Lewis (Emmy winner, "The Office") and Paul Hoen ("Camp Rock 2 The Final Jam") have joined in on the fun, as "JONAS L.A." takes each of the three brothers in different directions and brings them back together for a chorus of fun.

The all-new 13-song soundtrack includes "L.A. Baby (Where Dreams Are Made Of)," "Chillin' in the Summertime" and "Your Biggest Fan."

The second season of fun delves into individual storylines as Kevin, Joe and Nick - and their security chief, Big Man - are fresh off their world concert tour and ready for a summer vacation in a rental house high atop the Hollywood Hills. As they begin their left coast adventure, two familiar faces, Stella and Macy, join them and wind up sharing a nearby guesthouse with Stella's aunt Lisa. Now, the five friends take off on a summer of fun, especially after they meet their gregarious neighbor, DZ.

Despite months of anticipation, Joe and Stella encounter detours on the road to "Joella," mainly since he's met free-spirited actress Vanessa Page, who's helping him pursue his acting ambition. After auditioning in a room filled with "Joes," he lands a role in Vanessa's new movie, and their mercurial working relationship quickly spurs rumors of "Jonessa." While on the movie set, Kevin gets his long sought chance to learn film directing, and manages to steer around the abrasive manner of his mentor, famed director Mona Klein. Meanwhile, Nick writes new songs for the band and is pleasantly surprised by his growing friendship with Macy, which makes him want to prove he's more than just a world famous rock star.

"JONAS L.A." stars Kevin Jonas as Kevin Lucas, Joe Jonas as Joe Lucas, Nick Jonas as Nick Lucas, Chelsea Staub (Disney Channel's "StarStuck") as Stella Malone and Nicole Anderson (ABC Family's "Make It or Break It") as Macy Misa. Recurring guest stars are Debi Mazar ("Entourage") as Mona Klein, Adam Hicks (of Disney XD's "Zeke and Luther") as DZ, Abby Pivaronas ("Lincoln Heights") as Vanessa Page, Rob Feggans as Big Man, Frankie Jonas as Frankie Lucas, and Beth Crosby ("All My Children") as Aunt Lisa.

"JONAS L.A." is executive-produced by Lester Lewis and Paul Hoen. The series was created by Roger S.H. Schulman and Michael Curtis. The series is an It's A Laugh Production in association with Disney Channel. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.
