Here’s a little Disney Channel math for you: boy band + vampires = comedy.
That’s the formula for the network’s latest pilot order Forever Boys. Per our sister site Variety, the potential series follows three brothers — played by Liam Attridge, Ricky Garcia and Emery Kelly, members of the band Forever In Your Mind — who were turned into vampires in 1957. Cut to the present day, where a music producer convinces the trio to emerge from the shadows and aspire to rock ‘n’ roll superstardom.
And Forever Boys already has deep roots in the Disney soil; not only is Forever In Your Mind signed to Disney’s Hollywood records, but Garcia is also a series regular on the sitcom Best Friends Whenever.
Production begins on the Forever Boys pilot in September for a potential 2017 series premiere.
