Production has begun on Pop’s The Joey Mac Project – an eight-episode centered on former boy band heartthrob, Joey McIntyre’s efforts to be taken seriously as a legitimate actor – and how that leads him to become host of a cable talk show.
The Joey Mac Project stars McIntyre’s real life wife and kids alongside an ensemble that includes Adam Ray, Jamie Denbo, Katie Wee, Punam Patel and Jordan Black.
Joey MacIntyre is still the youngest of the New Kids on the Block – but now, he’s trying to find ‘his personal stardom following his boy band fame’ in a new scripted comedy series for Pop that’s tentatively entitled The Joey Mac Project.
Not wishing to rest on his boy band laurels, Joey is struggling to be recognized as a serious actor following the band’s latest sold out tour.
Pop has ordered eight episodes of the show – which is executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny McCarthy and Joey McIntyre. Follow the jump for more.
