Teenage musical group Savvy has formed a strategic alliance with The Jonas Group. TJB will now guide the careers of Savvy members Shaylen Carroll, Sarah Gabrielle LeMaire, Mariah Parks, Drew Reinartz, Alan Shaw & Andrew Bowen Stern. The American-born recording and performing group whose new TV show, ‘The Wannabes Starring Savvy,‘ will debut on Australia’s ABC3 network Sunday, March 7 in the prime Sunday 7:10 PM timeslot.
The series will subsequently roll out to other countries worldwide. Kevin Jonas Sr. said: ‘We are honored to have teamed up with such an innovative group. Never before have we seen an independently financed production so fully functioning with such a high-quality product.’ ‘The Wannabes Starring Savvy’ follows six high school students at an upscale arts academy that scoffs at their dreams of becoming singing sensations.
After the principal catches the group performing in the student lounge, he sentences them to one week of detention, working for free at a local cafe. Fortunately for these wannabe pop stars, the daughter of the cafe owner shares their same dreams and talks her dad into letting the academy students rock out at the cafe, as long as she can join the group. He agrees, but has his own ideas of how to use their musical talents for his own profit, making them wear costumes to promote his latest smoothie creations.
Fruit attire and all, the band is a hit, and they are booked to perform every week. The Wannabes will learn to balance their high school studies with their secret life as performing artists. The six singers get into outrageous situations as they try to climb their way to the top of the pop charts, all while hiding their identity from the principal. Each episode will feature an Savvy exclusive music video.
The Jonas Group is a leading management company with offices in Los Angeles and Dallas. The Jonas Group represents such artists and actors as the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Jordin Sparks, The Wonder Girls and Meaghan Martin among many other talented acts.
