E! ANNOUNCES NEW SERIES WITH INTERNATIONAL POP SENSATION THE WANTED

Premiering in June, "The Wanted Life" (working title) Will Chronicle the Professional and Personal Lives of the Edgy Pop Music Powerhouse

Los Angeles, CA, February 6, 2013 - The Wanted has taken the world by storm and now the chart-topping UK pop band is heading to sunny California to record their third album, gear up for their new US & Europe tour later in 2013 and solidify their top ranking on American pop music charts. This fun-loving, ambitious fivesome - aka the Bad Boys of Pop - will live together in the Hollywood Hills and take on all that LA has to offer. Produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, SB Productions and Global TV UK, the new half-hour series premieres this June in the US on E! and around the world this fall.

"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," said Suzanne Kolb, President, E! "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," said 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."

The Wanted are a band like no other. This trend-setting group of guys embraces their megastar lives and international fame to the very fullest with an unapologetic style. Between the appearances, recording sessions and rehearsals, the boys also juggle sometimes complicated and high profile personal lives and relationships, including the girlfriends of two group members who have decided to tag along to LA.

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-fianc�e, 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.

Also along for the ride in LA is Nano Tissera from music mogul Scooter Braun's management company whose 24/7 job is to be responsible for the guys' whereabouts and keep them focused. While serving as management's eyes and ears on the band, he is the glue that keeps everyone together and endures endless teasing from the guys who love to get a rise out of him. Nareesha McCaffrey is Siva's often disapproving girlfriend who is not happy about sharing quarters with the entire band, and Kelsey Hardwick is Tom's girlfriend who loves to party as much as the boys.

The series is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, SB Productions and Global TV UK. Executive producers are Ryan Seacrest, Adam Sher, Scooter Braun, Ashley Tabor and Danny Rose.

"The Wanted Life" (working title) debuts this June on E! in the US and around the world this fall.
