    NEW YORK, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Nickelodeon's got rock n' roll fever
 as its hit mockumentary series, The Naked Brothers Band, returns to TEENick

 Season two showcases the teen rock band as they hit the open road for their

 Brothers Band airs regularly on Nickelodeon Saturday nights at 8:30 p.m.
 (ET/PT).

     "Nat and Alex are bonafide rock stars who have captured the hearts of
 kids everywhere with their original music and we're excited to kick off a
 brand-new season of their hit series," said Marjorie Cohn, Executive Vice
 President Original Programming & Development, Nickelodeon Networks. "This
 season finds the band prepping for their tour while still having the same
 ups and downs of kid-dom that their fans at home are experiencing. It's
 this authenticity that's the appeal of the show - plus the music is
 irresistible."
 
     In the second-season premiere, titled "Sidekicks," the band is
 performing at the Amigos Middle School's end of school dance, which is the
 same night as Rosalina's high school dance. The scheduling conflict leads
 to even bigger issues when Rosalina lands an older date to her dance and
 Nat gets stuck with the ever snotty Patrice, who is just trying to show
 Rosalina up. The episode will include two brand-new original singles,
 "Mystery Girl" and "I Don't Want to Go to School," both written and
 performed by Nat Wolff.
 
     Fans of the hit series can relive every moment of the first season with
 the recent DVD release of The Naked Brothers Band: Season 1, which is
 currently available at selected retailers across the country. The two-disc
 collection is jam-packed with all 13 season-one episodes and exciting bonus
 features including web-episodes and rockin' music videos. The DVD is
 produced by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount
 Home Entertainment.
 
     Nickelodeon and Columbia Records released The Naked Brothers Band self-
 titled debut CD which includes 15 all-original songs from the hit series
 written and performed by the show's stars, Nat Wolff and Alex Wolff. Also
 available now at retail is The Naked Brothers Band: Battle of the Bands
 DVD, which includes the title movie as well as additional episodes and
 music videos.
 
     The series is created, executive produced, written and directed by
 Polly Draper (thirtysomething) who doubles as off-camera mom to Nat Wolff
 and Alex Wolff. She was recently nominated for a 2008 Writers Guild Award
 in the category of Children's Episodic & Specials for the episode titled
 "Nat is a Stand Up Guy." Celebrated jazz musician/composer Michael Wolff
 (The Arsenio Hall Show) - the stars' real-life dad and Draper's husband --
 keeps it all in the family but plays against type as the screen tweens'
 musically inept father and serves as the series' music
 supervisor/co-executive producer. Along with Draper, Albie Hecht (The
 Rugrats Movie, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Lemony Snicket's A Series
 of Unfortunate Events) serves as executive producer of the series in
 association with Nickelodeon Television.
 
     Inspired by the Wolff siblings' real-life, preschool-born band, The
 Naked Brothers Band follows a world-famous rock group, chronicling their
 fame, friendship, temporary break-up and adolescent experiences. The
 cameras track the charismatic, rock stars - led by dreamy, sensitive
 singer-songwriter Nat, 13, and energetic, unabashedly adorable drummer
 Alex, 10 -- on and off stage, focusing, too, on their celebrity lifestyle
 with all of its perks and problems. Featured as well are the Wolff boys'
 real-life friends and band mates from pre-school days: cellist Thomas
 (Thomas Batuello) and keyboard player David (David Levi), along with
 guitarist Qaasim (Qaasim Middleton) and bassist -- Nat's crush -- Rosalina
 (Allie DiMeco). Cooper (Cooper Pillot), the band's pint-sized manager,
 completes the tween troop, and Jesse (Jesse Draper) is Nat and Alex's ditzy
 tutor/babysitter and real-life cousin.
 
     The series is shot on location in Brooklyn, New York and launched
 internationally in spring 2007 on Nickelodeon UK. The series continues to
 roll out across Nick's 31 channels world-wide, concluding with Nick Holland
 in February 2008. The Naked Brothers Band has been nominated for two 2007
 Nickelodeon Australia Kids' Choice Awards, a 2007 Nickelodeon UK Kids'
 Choice Award, and the movie received a nomination for a 2007 Teen Choice
 Award. Additionally, Nat Wolff, Alex Wolff, and Michael Wolff are all
 recipients of the BMI 2007 Cable Award.
 
     The premiere of The Naked Brothers Band television series delivered
 Nickelodeon's highest-rated premiere in seven years with kids 6-11 and the
 series quickly became one of the top programs for kids 6-11 and tweens on
 television.
