Disney Channel has greenlit the new comedy pilot Forever Boys, a supernatural concept starring Ricky Garcia, Emery Kelly and Liam Attridge from the Hollywood Records band Forever in your Mind.

The pilot is set to begin production next month in L.A. and will be in consideration for a 2017 series. Forever Boys follows three brothers who were bitten by a vampire in 1957 and re-emerge after half a century in hiding to make their debut as a supernatural boy band.

Forever in your Mind released its debut EP FIYM in July, and the band’s music videos have amassed more than 10 million views on VEVO. Earlier this summer, the band headlined Radio Disney’s Sounds of Summer concert at L.A.’s Roxy Theater.

Bob Smiley (Yes, Dear) wrote the pilot and will serve as co-executive producer. Additional writers include David Light, Joseph Raso and Stephen Engel (The Big Band Theory). Adam Stein (Jimmy Kimmel Live) will direct.

Forever Boys is a recent addition to Disney Channel’s growing lineup, which includes the original movie The Swap, bowing October 7, and Elena of Avalor, the new animated series that debuted in July.
