Also available now at retail is The Naked Brothers Band: Battle of the Bands DVD, which includes the title movie as well as additional episodes and music videos.

Inspired by the Wolff siblingsí real-life, preschool-born band, The Naked Brothers Band follows a world-famous rock group, chronicling their fame, friendship, temporary break-up and adolescent experiences. The cameras track the charismatic, rock stars -- led by dreamy, sensitive singer-songwriter Nat, 12, and energetic, unabashedly adorable drummer Alex, 10 -- on and off stage, focusing, too, on their celebrity lifestyle with all of its perks and problems. Featured as well are the Wolff boysí real-life friends and band mates from pre-school days: cellist Thomas (Thomas Batuello) and keyboard player David (David Levi), along with guitarist Qaasim (Qaasim Middleton) and bassist -- Natís crush -- Rosalina (Allie DiMeco). Cooper (Cooper Pillot), the bandís pint-sized manager, completes the tween troop, and Jesse (Jesse Draper) is Nat and Alexís ditzy tutor/babysitter and real-life cousin.

The second season of The Naked Brothers Band recently wrapped production in Brooklyn, New York, and is set to premiere on Nickelodeon in January 2008. The series also launched internationally in spring 2007 on Nickelodeon UK and has continued to roll out across Nickís 31 channels world-wide, to conclude with Nick Holland in February 2008. The Naked Brothers Band has been nominated for two 2007 Nickelodeon Australia Kidsí Choice Awards, a 2007 Nickelodeon UK Kidsí Choice Award, and the movie received a nomination for a 2007 Teen Choice Award. Additionally, Nat, Alex, and Michael Wolff are all recipients of the BMI 2007 Cable Award.
