It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for since we last saw all five Backstreet Boys together on Dancing With The Stars. This Friday, Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick will be joining the cast of Undateable and you definitely don’t want to miss it. There’s been a lot of questions floating around about what they’ll be doing, what the show is about, etc. As a fan of the show since it’s beginning, I’ll aim to give you a little insight!
1. Yes, The Show IS Actually Live.
After doing their season finale live, Undateable decided to make the entire third season a live affair. This means more ad-libbing, live audience, live surprises, more laughs and literally anything could happen! The cast is also known to live tweet DURING the show with shots from the set as it airs. Be sure to follow @NBCUndateable and members of the cast if you aren’t already.
Because the show is live, it DOES run an East coast and a West coast version. The same show does not air twice. WHAT?!
2. Undateable Is A Mix Between Friends and Cheers.
If you’ve never watched the show before, you might be a little confused at first, but trust me, it’s easy to get into. Chris D’elia and Brent Morin play Danny and Justin, two roommates who are polar opposites. Justin (Brent Morin) is a lovable, sensitive guy who owns Black Eyes Bar in Detroit. He is also dating Candace (Bridgit Mendler). The pair are sticky sweet and often break out into song (Fun Fact: Justin broke into a BSB song in the FIRST episode).
Danny (Chris D’elia) plays the “undateable” Danny, but has recently hooked up with hardass Charlotte, played by Whitney Cummings. He’s got a tough, seemingly unlovable exterior but always ends up softening in the end.
These two along with all of their friends, my favorites being Shelly and Brett, make the cast a really great one. Throw the Backstreet Boys in and who KNOWS how good it will get!
3. How Will The Backstreet Boys Be Involved?
Typically, the featured band / singer sings a song during the opening and closing credits. However, from the tweets sent out by the Undateable cast and social media, we have reason to believe that the Boys will not only be singing, but involved in the actually entire 30 minutes of the show. Insert the high pitched squealing here!
If that wasn’t enough, a tweet this week also revealed that the highly favored Millennium album will be done “cover to cover”. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?! Tune in to find out. 🙂
