There may be life after ’N Sync for Lance Bass and Joey Fatone — as television stars.
The former boy band members are developing a new series about their lives for UPN described as a modern-day “Odd Couple,” said Dawn Ostroff, the network president, Thursday.
Fatone is Oscar, the slob. Bass is Felix.
Tentatively dubbed, “Out of Sync,” and planned for this fall, it’s a hybrid of reality and comedy, she said.
“They came to us,” she said. “Joey and Lance are such fun, interesting people and they truly are an odd couple — even if you sit in a room with them, it’s Felix and Oscar in many ways.”
It’s a classic kind of story that could resonate with a new generation, Ostroff said.
’N Sync ruled the music world at the turn of the decade, until Justin Timberlake’s departure sent them tumbling into obscurity.
