(Relaxnews) – Brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, who first shot to fame in ’90s boy band 98 Degrees, will be starring in a new reality TV series chronicling their attempts to open a bar in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Set to premiere in 2015, “Lachey’s Bar” will follow the pair as they fulfill a ‘lifelong dream’ to open a watering hole in their name, reports Deadline.com.

Cable network A&E Network has ordered 10 episodes from Leftfield Pictures which is producing the series.

If the concept sounds familiar, that’s because A&E already airs ‘The Wahlburgers,’’ which follows another pair of famous brothers — Donnie and Mark Wahlberg — from the 1990s who likewise enjoyed boy band fame and chart-topping hits that earned them the adoration of screaming girls.

The Lachey series is currently in production in Cincinnati, where the elder Nick will likely settle with his wife Vanessa Minnillo, who is pregnant with next second child. The couple will live next door to brother Drew.

Nick Lachey is old hat to the workings of reality TV. In addition to his infamous series “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica” which followed him and first wife Jessica Simpson as they navigated life as newlywed stars, Lachey let cameras follow him around for his second wedding to Minnillo. The wedding was televised on TLC.
