The show is based on a format produced by MTV UK (Totally Boyband), in which a boy band is formed with various members of successful pop acts from the past. The show follows the production, recording, performance and behind-the-scenes action involved in the run-up to the launch of their first single as a new group.
The band, which calls itself Sureshot, consists of four members:Bryan Abrams (Color Me Badd)
Rich Cronin (LFO)
Chris Kirkpatrick (*NSYNC)
Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees)
The band lived together for three weeks in Kirkpatrick's home in Orlando, Florida, and collectively wrote and produced songs with the help of professionals from the music industry, multi-Grammy winner and nominee, music producer Bryan Michael Cox, music manager Katie McNeil and vocal coach Gerry Williams as cameras followed their every move. On January 23, 2007, the band performed at halftime of an Orlando Magic basketball game, where they ended up being booed from the arena after their performance. The performance was filmed by VH1. On January 30, the band performed at Mansion in Miami, Florida, also filmed by VH1. Shooting for the show took place between January 15 and February 2, 2007.
The show is produced by Tijuana Entertainment, the same producing team behind Breaking Bonaduce and Shooting Sizemore.
