The Premise: They could sing, they could dance and for almost a decade, they ruled the airwaves, maintaining a stranglehold on their bustling, female, TRL-addicted audience. They were dubbed “the Boy Bands” and during their Golden Age, the likes of N-Sync, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees and O-Town spawned a legion of imitators that seemed to multiply unchecked.
But it could not last. Trends change and now a whole generation of former Boy Band heart throbs has found themselves looking toward life after Teen Idol-dom.
Alas, it would seem the days when a snap of their fingers brought the spoils of Pop Stardom to their feet are long over. Or are they?
VH1's new series MISSION: MAN BAND dares to ask the question, "Can five grown up Boy Band heart throbs join forces to capture new fame and fortune?"
The Experiment: Five Boy Band Legends live together for three weeks, create new music, a dynamic stage show and perform as a new pop group. Will lightning strike twice?
The Cast: While every former Boy Band heart throb has his own story, many are remarkably similar. Some achieved true Superstardom; others were delivered crushing blows by bad management, shady producers and a public that didn't want to see them grow up. For every survivor story, there are those who barely made it out of the Boy Band Machine alive.
Each member of the cast finds himself at a different stage in his career. Some may be confident, financially comfortable and just looking to make new music. Some might be stacking produce after being forced to take a day job. Still others may have faced profound life challenges (divorce, illness etc.) that have changed their outlook and given them something to write about.
Now, they are given a real chance to make it on THEIR terms. Who are they?

With 20/20 hindsight, can they avoid the pitfalls of the past? Given all the tools they need (recording studio, stellar producer etc.) will they let go of old baggage, move forward and make the magic happen?
MISSION: MAN BAND answers the question - can talent win out and find these former Teen idols a new audience?
So, if you would like to win some exclusive 'MISSION: MAN BAND' merchandise, and you think you know all there is to know about one of these guys, just answer this easy question: One of them (as a band member) had a minor hit that also appeared in an infamous Demi Moore film ... which one was it and what was the name of the song?!
