Earlier this year Ashton revealed he would be happy to return for a new series: "I'm having a lot of fun doing the show, working with these guys and would be interested in coming back. The deal that we structured for the show is kind of a test deal, 'Can we get the show up? Can we get it going?' The show is outperforming the numbers from before I was here, and so I think people are responding to it, and, for me having a show that people like and people want more of, that'll dictate my decision."
Kevin Jonas is to star in his own reality TV show. The 24-year-old singer and his wife Danielle will appear in E!'s Married to Jonas - on which Ryan Seacrest will act as the executive producer - and will tell the tale of how the pair, who married in 2009, are dealing with their lives in the international spotlight.
"Danielle is living a true Cinderella story after marrying into pop royalty, partnering in Kevin's larger-than-life career and becoming a 'Jonas,' a name synonymous with hit music and a worldwide fan base. The series presents a unique look at a young couple and their families from two entirely different worlds, one small town and one dealing with international fame, coming together as one and starting a whole new life together," said Lisa Berger, president of entertainment programming for E!.
Ryan - who is best known as a presenter on American Idol - reveals plans have been in motion for some time to create a show, which will begin airing in August, based around the couple: "I vividly recall believing from the very first time that I met them that the Jonas Brothers would, without a doubt, become a worldwide cultural sensation. When we learned that Dani married Kevin, our production team became curious about what life would be like for a young bride entering the excitement, and sometimes chaos, of a pop star's life. The show will examine the ups and downs of Dani and Kevin's marriage, against the backdrop of their contrasting family cultures, traditions and individual careers."
