Kevin Jonas talks about JONAS Season Two



The 22-year-old actor spoke to TV Guide magazine about what’s happening in season two involving Nicole Anderson, Chelsea Staub and Joe. Here are some highlights:

On filming new music sequences: “That was incredible (filming with a helicopter on the rooftop of the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa) — out of control! We never did anything like that last season. It feels like a movie! It was very cool standing there and seeing the Hollywood sign behind us—very appropriate for what this season has to hold.”

On the theme of season two: “It’s a much different show—it’s on location, it will be all over the place. The big idea is we’re spending the summer away in Los Angeles and exploring what this city has to offer. It’s going to be pretty cool—new characters, new storylines… so many different things are going to happen with it. It’s so much more fun and it’s incredible to be outside and feel the warmth of the sun all day. You have this beautiful landscape around you—it’s awesome!”

On the love connections in the series: “I’m not able to say (on Macy and Kevin), but she’s (Macy) definitely a big part of this next season and I think fans will connect with her on a further level. (With Stella and Joe) something very interesting is going to happen with that whole situation. It’s pretty cool!”

Savvy signs with Jonas Group



The up and coming teen group Savvy has just announced, forgive the obvious pun, a savvy strategic alliance with the Jonas Group, who represent and guide the careers of artists like Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, and Jordin Sparks. Savvy members Shaylen Carroll, Sarah Gabrielle LeMaire, Mariah Parks, Drew Reinartz, Alan Shaw, and Andrew Bowen Stern are an American born recording and performing group whose new TV show The Wannabees starring Savvy just premiered in Australia. The show will soon be coming to American television once a network deal has been inked.

Savvy is excited about their new alliance with the Jonas Group, which is a leading management company that has offices in Los Angles and Dallas. The Jonas Group shares in Savvy's enthusiasm. "We are honored to have teamed up with such an innovative group," said Kevin Jonas Sr. "Never before have we seen an independently financed production so fully functioning with such a high-quality product."

Savvy has been together since 2004, performing at over 400 live concerts in the U.S. including a headlining gig on Radio Disney's "Feelin' Groovy" tour. With the upcoming premier of their new TV show on the horizon, the parnership with Jonas Group is timely.

Their TV show, The Wannabees, follows six high school students who attend an upscale arts academy that frowns upon their dreams of becoming pop stars. During the first season, the Wannabees struggle to balance school with their secret life as performing artists. Along the way, the six encounter outrageous situations as they try to reach the top of the pop charts, while hiding their true identities.

Each episode will contain an original Savvy exclusive music video.
