NEW YORK, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Nickelodeon's got rock n' roll fever as its hit mockumentary series, The Naked Brothers Band, returns to TEENick this winter with a special one-hour, season-two premiere on Monday, Jan. 21, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT). The half-hour series stars rockers, buddies and real-life brothers Nat Wolff and Alex Wolff as they gear up for a new season featuring a star-studded celebrity line-up including Good Charlotte's Joel Madden, famed skateboarder Tony Hawk, comedian George Lopez, Grammy Award-winning artist Phil Collins and 14 new, original songs. Season two showcases the teen rock band as they hit the open road for their first national tour in groovy 70's style as they travel across the country in their very own Naked Brothers' psychedelic-themed tour bus. The Naked Brothers Band airs regularly on Nickelodeon Saturday nights at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

"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.
