Nick Lachey and his younger brother Drew Lachey get their own reality series on A&E. The network announces that it has greenlit the show, "Lachey's Bar" (working title), for a 10 episode season.
Production will begin immediately for a 2015 premiere. The half-hour show follows the siblings, who are former members of 98 Degrees, as they open a bar in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Nick and wife Vanessa Minnillo split their time between Los Angeles and New York but Drew returned to Ohio years ago. While Nick and his family decide where they want to put roots down, the bar gives them a real reason to make Cincinnati home base. Luckily they already have a house in 'Cincy,' right next door to Drew's, and a built-in group of childhood friends ready to fill their new establishment.
Nick previously starred on MTV's reality series "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica" with then wife Jessica Simpson and TLC's special "Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding".
The concept of "Lachey's Bar" is similar to A&E's another reality show, "Wahlburgers", starring Mark Wahlberg, Donnie Wahlberg and their younger brother Paul Wahlberg as they run a hamburger restaurant.
