The series will be titled Rock This Boat: NKOTB and it will center on this boy band (can we still call them that?) hanging out at sea with some of their most hardcore fans.


TV Guide Channel announced the program as part of its upfront presentation Tuesday.

It also confirmed plans for The Sorrentinos, which will star Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his family.
